Using this acquired knowledge, the certificate holder will make the OKR culture successful for all team members and managers in their organization.

Objectives and Key Results are considered the Agile methodology for managing objectives. The original concept came from Andy Grove, former CEO of Intel, and spread to other organizations in Silicon Valley. It enabled the growth of these companies.

It is an approach that is simple to understand and a challenge to apply, to create alignment and engagement around measurable objectives toward company strategies, mission, and vision. The objective is to ensure that everyone moves in the same direction, with clear priorities, at a constant pace. OKRs have been a standard agile tool for startups, as it provides proportional predictability of strategic positioning and prioritization.

Learn the basics of OKRs and how you can achieve your strategies, mission, and vision with Objectives and Key Results.
