OKR TRAINING COURSES
Would your teams like to be trained in OKR?
There is no need to struggle with OKR or risk an OKR re-boot in 6 months. OKRs can be made really simple and how to implement them can be made straightforward.
There are a range of course to choose from. Leaders, Managers, OKR Heads and HR Teams all have programs to choose from.
For example, our 2 x 2 hour leadership program, is designed to quickly tell leaders what they need to know. Key implementation decisions can then be made and avoid common pitfalls avoided.
TRY OUR OKR SOFTWARE
ZOKRI is OKR software that has been designed to to do more than host your OKRs in the cloud.
ZOKRI will help you manage your whole OKR implementation. Ensuring OKR best-practices are followed, the right amount of thought and consideration has been given to each OKRs creation.
Rituals like check-ins, weekly meetings and retrospectives will not only get followed, they will become habitual.
Stop your teams getting confused by OKR when there is no need to, help OKRs make total sense and be a welcomed addition.
ZOKRI helps organizations unlock the benefits of strategic and goal setting frameworks like OKR. Systematically ensuring strategic alignment, and keeping teams engaged and focused on achievement throughout every quarter.
“I took the time to enter our executive OKRs into 3 platforms to test and demonstrate them to the broader team, after investigating 9. I found that ZOKRI was considerably easier than the others to enter the data into.
Beyond the ease and intuitiveness of the platform, the actual structure of the OKR builder was the most comprehensive. It easily accommodated % based Key Results and even allowed me to create thresholds.
Finally, having KPIs and OKRs separated but living in the same system is wonderful. The ability to have KPIs and OKRs in a team meeting or a dashboard whilst maintaining their separate functions, complex health metrics and working priorities is incredible.”

Thinking about using OKR?
This is what you and your colleagues need to know about succeeding with this goal setting framework.
“We’ve agreed our strategy but we’re struggling to get it executed. Everything from having the strategy understood and visible, to ensuring teams are aligned and not having the day-to-day take over is getting in the way.”
You start by operationalizing strategic alignment, prioritisation, focus and engagement. This requires planning, system thinking, and central system or hub where everything comes to life. Strategy delivery gets a pulse and everything from how aligned goals are set, to how progress is shared and issues resolved are systemized.
“We know having a consistent and transparent way to set and share high impact goals has a material impact on performance, and we need to commit to making it part of our standard business operations.”
Arguing against the need for strategically aligned goals with measurable outcomes, built with the insights, inputs and support of leadership and the teams doing the work is nonsensical. Yet the day-to-day takes over and what makes sense takes a back seat. Luckily we make best-practice business operations simple to do and efficient to run.
“We need to have better and more frequent conversations in and across teams, about how and where we should focus our efforts. Everything is a priority, people are spread thinly and not loving work as a result.”
Having a systematic way to give teams and employees clarity on precisely which goals need to have progress made during the quarter, and which goals or metrics don’t, makes a huge difference to team performance. We solve this.
“There are some teams that need to work more closely together and they’re not. Having shared goals with shared accountability is the start of solving this challenge.”
Cross-team collaboration has never been so important. Knowing when and how to form cross-functional teams, or squads, that work towards high value objectives with measurable outcomes is a critical business capability. We provide the foundations to make this an easy thing to do and manage.
“We are good at telling people what do do and not great at asking and getting consensus on what needs to improve the most. This is as wasted opportunity.”
There is valuable knowledge and experience in every team that never gets tapped into. It’s incredibly common to discover employees that have stopped sharing their opinions and ideas. What’s more, goals that are dictated are not going to give us the same release dopamine that being part of the goal setting process will, and dopamine impacts our motivation and ability to keep pursuing goals. We systematically unlock the value and energy associated with bottom-up goal setting.
“Gathering updates and reports is time consuming and painful. Current progress and issues are generally not known and updates often happen verbally in meetings.”
Gathering progress updates and reporting narratives for stakeholders and the design and formatting of documents for easy consumption can often be time consuming and painful. What’s more, it’s often b being done by a senior hire like the Chief-of-Staff. Of course, there is a better way.

It’s common to think that what you need to implement OKRs is a simple to use OKR tool. If that was true, spreadsheets would work. The reality is that companies investing in strategy delivery and better goal setting using Objectives and Key Results need to invest in specific, best in class OKR software like ZOKRI. Technology where everything that matters, from goal update processes, integrations, and goal cycle management are supported and optimized.
OKR management is about creating and embedding an OKR process and cadence that is easy to follow, naturally aligns teams, scales and gets results.
ZOKRI manages OKR from quarter to quarter like no other OKR management tool you’ll find. The difference is in the big and small details that really matter. Differences that we would like you to see, experience and benefit from.
What does Enterprise OKR Software do that basic OKR tools do not? The answer is what your Enterprise needs it to do. The services we offer to enterprise customers include software configuration, integrations, training and on-boarding, QBRs, road-map access and more.
