OKR Workshop: Learn How to Properly Set and Measure Goals
“As much as I hate process, good ideas with great execution is how you make magic”
Planning for the year is simple but it is not easy. It requires us to stop and think. Think about what exactly you are attempting to achieve and how you are going to assess if you are making progress. It sounds simple but most of us prefer to jump into action over planning.
We prefer doing and seeing the impact afterwards over defining objective measures and measuring as we go. We go month after month doing the same thing and measuring incremental changes. But significant changes are not incremental.
This event will introduce you to the OKR process (“Objectives and Key Results”). This is a goal setting and execution system used by Google and several other companies and NGOs. At the end of the workshop, you will understand key concepts, you will have some practice
The workshop is useful for individuals and for teams. If you are trying to bring OKRs into your organization, we recommend to have the decision maker attend the workshop as well.
