Level 1: Deployment of OKRS


Step 1

We confirm why you are deploying OKRs.

Step 2

We assess your existing strategy and any OKRs if you have already implemented

Step 3

We define your OKR deployment plan based on your Strategies / Goals

Questions (parameters) that need to be answered before deploying OKRs:

  1. Levels: At what level will we set OKRs?
  2. Number: How many OKRs will we set?
  3. Scoring: How will we score OKR?
  4. Cycle Time: How long is the OKR cycle?
  5. Tools: Where do we draft, publish, and track OKRs?
  6. Performance Reviews: How will OKRs relate to performance reviews?
  7. OKRs vs KPIs: How do we differentiate OKRs from KPIs?
  8. Alignment: How will we ensure OKRs are aligned?
  9. Bottoms-Up: How will we ensure most OKRs originate bottom-up?
  10. Pilot Group: How will we ensure only OKR enthusiasts join this group?

Level 2: OKR Training


The parameters that are defined in Level 1 constitute your OKRs training program. We customize the training to define company and team/department OKRs specifically. You also have the option to include OKR Practitioner training, which will create a group of internal experts and coaches in OKRs. These internal OKR Practitioners will help ensure the sustainability of your OKRs program. The training workshops start with an overview of OKRs, emphasising your specific set of deployment parameters. Most of the training workshop time is dedicated to interactive exercises to draft your OKRs.


LEVEL 3: OKR CYCLE COACHING


Step 1

Set and Align OKRs

Step 2

Check-In and Track

Step 3

Reflect and Reset

OKR Cycle typically runs 3-4 months but depends on the rhythm of your organization.

OKR Cycle Step 1: Set and Align OKRs

We assist you in refining, aligning, and publishing your OKRs in one central location. This can be done using a dedicated software tool or by utilizing one of our OKR templates.

OKR Cycle Step 2: Check-In and Monitor

We ensure that you integrate OKRs into your daily work throughout the OKR cycle and focus on those objectives, executing them effectively. Without proper OKR implementation, many teams simply return to their desks and work on their to-do lists, failing to integrate OKRs into their daily work.

OKR Cycle Step 3: Reflect and Reset

This step involves both reflecting on the past and looking into the future. As OKR Coaches, we focus not on holding you accountable for achieving all your key results. However, we do expect you to document what you have learned and apply those learnings to the next OKR cycle. At the end of the cycle, we will facilitate a Reflect & Reset session to ensure these learnings are properly documented and applied for the next cycle.


Audience

Any organization that wants to implement OKRs and needs assistance for a successful and sustainable implementation.

How long is The OKR Implementation program?

Our OKR implementation program runs for 8 months. It includes a total of 25h OKR Coaching sessions, split into 16 live zoom sessions, for up to 25 participants.
