OKRs AT THE CENTER ACADEMY

Live Online Training

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.

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.

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.

Our learning approach

APPLICATION IS KEY

  • 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 role-based trainings are each 4 week programs, 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.
  • To become certified, you will need to complete your assignment – your individual OKR application roadmap.

LIVE EXPERIENCE

  • 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 minutes and follows the “Training from the back of the room” approach to maximise your learning outcome

DEEPEN YOUR LEARNINGS

  • Every program also contains a reflect and Q&A session at the end of the 4 weeks to connect the dots
  • As OKR Coach or Process Owner you will also have access to the monthly Lean coffee sessions to discuss further topics and upcoming application questions.
