Descriere

Companies today are using OKRs—Objectives and Key Results—to improve the way they set and work with goals. Along the way, they discover something else: changing the way you work with goals can lead to other changes. Changes in how you plan work, how you lead and reward people, how you make decisions, how you budget, and so much more.In short, if you really, sincerely start pursuing goal- setting in a new way, you will discover that goals live at the center of everything you do. What's exciting about this is where it leads: Changing how you work with goals has the potential to drive ongoing change and bring new ways of working to the whole organization. That's what this book is about: how goals live at the center of your organizational system and how you can leverage their potential for organizational development by adopting OKRs in an intentional way.This short, practical book includes case studies, examples, and practical guidance to help you get started on your own OKR journey.Written by Natalija Hellesoe and Sonja Mewes, who bring their extensive experience working OKRs in companies of all sizes. Natalija and Sonja are trainers, coaches, and change agents. They work with companies at different stages of the their OKR journeys—from first "know-how" workshops to OKR Practitioner coaching and organizational development."This book is a great explanation of how to set and deploy OKRs to improve your business. Whereas other books paint a rosy picture of best-case scenario for setting and deploying OKRs, this one focuses on reality. Many companies will see themselves in this book and be able to harness the practical advice in the book to fix their current scenarios and thrive. Highly recommended for every business that's trying to find focus and define impact." - Melissa Perri, author "Escaping The Build Trap"

OKRs At The Center

Introduction

Companies today are using OKRs—Objectives and Key Results—to improve the way they set and work with goals.

Along the way, they discover something else: To really improve the way you work with goals implies you have to make other changes. Changes in how you plan work. Changes in how you lead people or people lead themselves. Changes in how you make decisions. Changes in how you reward people. Changes in how you budget. Changes on a personal, an interpersonal, and an organizational level.

In short, if you really, sincerely start pursuing goal-setting in a new way, you will discover that goals live at the center of everything you do. What’s exciting about this is where it leads: Changing how you work with goals has the potential to drive ongoing change and bring new ways of working to the whole organization.

That’s what this book is about: how goals live at the center of your organizational system and how you can leverage their potential for organizational development by adopting OKRs in an intentional way.

We work in a very competitive and fast-paced market, and our clients have high expectations. Right now, growth is the highest priority for our firm—we’ve hired many people, and have to grow our business to keep the lights on. At the same time, we see competitors and market changes. We need to adopt new ways of working to future-proof the firm.

Today Innovio has 500 employees, distributed across five offices in Europe. Over the last few years, the company has started to implement some new ways of working.

"We’ve experimented a little with agile project management, but there’s so much more we need to improve—sometimes it is hard to decide where to start and what to do first. So now we are looking for other concepts and tools to help us in
