Process

How does the OKR course work?

Our trainers will introduce you to the Objectives and Key Results methodology and place it in a larger context of agile ways of working. As a participant, you will understand what OKRs are and how they differ from traditional performance management. You'll experiment with your own OKRs and learn how to properly formulate OKRs.

In order to derive good OKRs, we need to address how we make decisions. The trainers will give you insight into the biases our brains are subject to when making decisions and how we can make more objective management decisions through empiricism and measurability.

Since OKRs only work with intrinsic motivation, you'll also get a brief glimpse into psychological processes that make us realize set goals or not.

To help you understand how OKRs are used in organizations, we derive Objectives and Key Results using a case study as an example. Starting with organizational OKRs, we break them down to individual objectives, including learning about the typical OKR process. You'll also learn about tools you can use when implementing OKRs.

Finally, we address the question of what to consider when introducing Objectives and Key Results, who should be involved and how, and what stumbling blocks can occur. In the process, the trainers will be happy to share their experiences from consulting projects, provide practical tips and answer your individual questions.

Agenda

Background and content of the OKR training

In today's age of digitalization, rapid changes in direction are needed. Strategic goals that were still targeted in the last quarter may be outdated today. Classic performance management with annual cycles and elaborate processes is therefore difficult to reconcile with an agile way of working. In addition, employees often identify too little with the cascaded targets and the bar is deliberately kept low, especially if target achievement is linked to compensation. A new approach to the measurable implementation of strategic goals are the so-called OKRs - Objectives and Key Results. OKRs are not linked to compensation and are deliberately formulated in a challenging way. Employees themselves determine how they can contribute to achieving organizational goals. However, this also requires a culture in which employees can and want to take ownership. In addition, they must have the freedom to help shape the organization in an entrepreneurial way. The method, which is quite simple in theory, often proves to be quite complex in practical implementation. Existing processes have to be rethought and abolished, and a new mindset has to be established. In addition, a new management style is required. Far too often, important management decisions are made on gut instinct and the consequences are not analyzed.
