Live Online , Self-Study and Hybrid training concepts

The OKRs AT THE CENTER Academy offers learning and development programs that support organizations on their journey towards increased focus, autonomy and value-creation through OKRs.

The programs focus on improving OKR knowledge
and practical application in their company as well as building internal competencies and roles to
successfully work with OKRs.

The OATC Academy offers open and customized trainings and certifications in English and German for “OKR Foundations”, “OKR Coach” and “OKR Process Owner” roles and surrounding topics.

A broad and complex subject like OKRs is best taught through a modular, practical approach – so you can learn step by step and implement it right away!

Agile Coach


Value for our organization

An OKR implementation does not work with a one-size-fits-all approach. Thanks to Sonja we now have a customized OKR System that we can continuously improve based on our needs. Especially showing us our maturity around the definition of Objectives and Key Results helped us to tremendously increase the value our OKR Systems bring to our organization.


Agile organizational developer EOS

Tremendous practical experience

We got introduced to OKRs in an international company. To actually understand the concept, we decided to organize a 2-day workshop for our Agile Coaches. And that was well worth it. that Sonja and Natalija do not only have textbook knowledge about OKRs, but tremendous practical experience. You could feel that in every comment made - that was really impressive. We as Agile Coaches left the two days full of inspiration. Now we will start to form a team around a shared goal.

Yes, you can transfer the ticket to another person within your company. Please inform us via Email at hello@okrs-at-the-center.com before doing that. The remote consulting offer will then also be transferred to the person actually participating in the workshop.

Our learning approach


  • We believe a broad and complex subject like OKRs is best taught through a modular, practical approach – so you can learn step by step and implement it right away.
  • Therefore, our open role-based trainings are conducted over the course of several weeks, giving you enough time in between the modules to digest the content, experiment in your context and reflect to make sure that you take away more than just theoretical knowledge.


  • Each module is short, focused and interactive to make the most out of the live experience and complemented by additional materials, preparation, reflection exercises and more.
  • Each session lasts 90 to 180 minutes and follows the “Training from the back of the room” approach to maximise your learning outcome


  • Every program also contains reflections and Q&A session(s) to connect the dots
  • As OKR Coach or Process Owner you will also have individual coaching sessions as part of the package to discuss further topics  and challenges relevant in your own context 
  • To become certified, you will need to complete your assignment – your individual OKR application roadmap.
