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 lays the foundation to understand OKRs as a concept and leverage their potential for organizational development by adopting OKRs in an intentional way.

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 at 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. 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 shared goals!
