Objective Key Results (OKR)
This course is for people working with strategy and goal setting in a position typically as founder, leader, manager or key employee.
This one-day course is for people working with strategy and goal setting either as a founder, leader, manager or as a key employee.
The course handles key components in strategy building – from market dynamics to internal capabilities. Our target is to brush up the participating companies’ strategies to balance outside dynamics with internal capabilities.
We utilize 2 fundamentally different strategy models to utilize their dynamics and their capability to create results for each company.
As an add on to the 2 strategy models, we look at market dynamics in general, how they could affect your choice of strategy and how to implement and operate your strategy.
Towards operations we focus on goal setting using Objectives and Key Results as our tool. Hence, each participating company must bring people relevant to strategy building/execution.
Building on goal setting tools we – if relevant for the company – will touch upon agile working methodologies to promote innovation.
During the course we touch upon key drivers for strategy implementation and – execution, e.g.:
- 2 different strategy models, their dynamics and results. Model fit for your company.
