Training 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 trainings are stretched out over 4 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 module lasts 90 minutes and follows the “Training from the back of the room” approach to maximise your learning outcome


  • Every program also contains a reflect and Q&A session at the end of the 4 weeks to connect the dots


After the training, we want you to profit from an international community for your future endeavours.

During your training you will be introduced to our vibrant (and free) OKR practitioner community sharing and learning from each other on Slack, in monthly remote meetups and open spaces.

We believe in the power of sharing so the broad OATC community is free and open for everyone! Additionally we do also have designated forums for OKR Coaches and OKR Process Owners.

  • 2 live sessions per week
  • Duration: 90 minutes
  • Language: English
  • Reflect & Q&A session in the end

What others are saying about our services ...


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.

Why this training?

These days, we often hear people talk about “transformation” at their companies. But how can you actually get moving and create good and sustainable momentum for ongoing changes in your organization?

Goals are embedded in the organizational system - they live at the center of everything you do. Therefore, changing the way you work with goals through concepts like OKRs has the potential to inspire new ways of working in the whole organization. Higher focus, alignment, transparency, and measurability for all employees at every level are often the first realized benefits. Higher value-creation, self-responsibility and becoming a learning organization are other potentials that can be unlocked through OKRs.

Yet many companies working with OKRs fall short of their expectation because there is no one way to work with them. Differently designed OKR Systems can lead to a variety of benefits,one cycle at a time, based on your starting point and what kind of organization you want to create in the future!

This training builds on the foundation to understand OKRs as a concept and leverage their potential for organizational development by supporting your teams to use OKRs in an intentional way and make the most of it!

OKR knowledge to design the best approach
