Introduction to OKR - Tailored

Half day seminar

This is a lively and engaging seminar suitable for business or divisional leaders who want to find out more about OKR in a context relevant to their business.

Following an hour long briefing call with you, we will put together a seminar tailored to your business.  This is ideal for introducing your management team to the OKR concepts.

The seminar deals with the challenges of creating effective and motivational OKRs, aligning them vertically and horizontally within your organisation and avoiding pitfalls during implementation.

Delegates very often find that the discussion that ensues from this seminar is very valuable, whether or not the business goes on to implement OKR.

At the end of the seminar delegates will know the theory behind OKR and Goal Driven Management.  They will be able to make an informed decision as to whether OKR will add value to a business. They will have the broad concepts of implementation in mind and be ready to move to the next stage of defining an implementation plan.

OKR launch and first cycle support

This is a three month long coaching program to support OKR implementation

It is completely tailorable to your specific business, department or organisation.  It starts with an introductory half day OKR seminar for key managers, plus a 2 hour abbreviated seminar for team leaders or managers within the business.

Ongoing coaching support is provided to leaders and managers as required, throughout the entire first OKR cycle.  Coaching will improve the skills required to draft good OKRs and support managers on embedding the right processes.

The coach will monitor and support the check in process, providing feedback to individuals as well as business leaders on its adoption and effectiveness.

The coaching will conclude with a set of clear recommendation for the second OKR cycle.

OKR Implementation and two cycle support

This is a six month long coaching program to support OKR implementation.

It is completely tailorable to your specific business, department or organisation.  It replicates the 3 month support program with an introductory half day OKR seminar for key managers, plus a 2 hour abbreviated seminar for team leaders or managers within the business.

Ongoing coaching support is provided to leaders and managers as required, throughout the entire first OKR cycle.  Coaching will improve the skills required to draft good OKRs and support managers on embedding the right processes.

The coach will monitor and support the check in process, providing feedback to individuals as well as business leaders on its adoption and effectiveness.

The coach will then support the business through the first cycle of resetting OKRs, second cycle of Check Ins, and scoring.

The benefit of two cycle support is that the first cycle often produces lower than expected scores due to the organisation resisting the focus that a true OKR program will bring. Hence running the second cycle with a coach is often a good way to ensure the program sticks and becomes truly embedded.
