ZOKRI makes it easy to set aligned goals that have the potential to move-the-needle using your preferred framework – OKR, EOS, NCT and others. We also have the implementor and integrator experts to help you create a winning strategic plan, set goals to execute it, and find a weekly execution rhythm.
How Business Management best-practices are described varies, but the ideas behind the labels are incredibly similar. How these concepts, tools and processes get implemented, embedded and sustained is where challenges can arise.
To illustrate how similar approaches are to improving business performance, here are four different goal setting frameworks Business Operating Systems (BOS) we can support at ZOKRI, along with the concepts, tools and processes that they require a company to commit and adhere to make them a success.
ZOKRI supports the implementation of all of these concepts so you can cherrypick the ones that work for you. Starting as big or as small as you like and letting the software as well as your ways of working evolve.
You can even combine many of these with business frameworks like Balanced Scorecard. In fact ZOKRI is frequently used to combine Balanced Scorecard with OKRs and KPIs and manage the execution cycles.

OKR is considered by most to be a goal setting framework. Consultants and coaches usually refer to it as a Strategy Delivery Framework, although a common implementation challenge OKR faces is that the work to create and be able to articulate a strategy has not been done.
Another implementation challenge is that when OKRs are not placed within a Business Operating System they often fail. Which is why coaches spend a lot of time working on the other elements of the system, something that’s often not understood.
If you’re trying to run a great business, want to scale and then keep scaling, how you you need a Business OS. What goes into you Business OS and what you call the concepts, tools, processes and rituals like meetings can be up to you. You just need to decide and commit. Getting everyone to do what needs to be done because they see the benefit is when the magic happens, and is where ZOKRI comes in.
A Business OS is a framework that helps you manage and optimize your business operations. It encompasses everything from your business processes and workflows to the tools and systems you use to manage them. The goal of a Business OS is to create a streamlined, efficient, and scalable business model that can adapt to changing market conditions and support growth.
One of the many benefits of a Business OS is they platform the goals that are going to ensure success and keep everyone on-track through processes like check-ins, issue flagging, priority setting, meetings, and reporting. It’s easy at any moment to see who is working on what.
A Business OS streamlines operations. By defining and optimizing your business management processes, you can keep team aligned, reduce distractions, and improve overall effective productivity – the work that will have the greatest impact.
If you get your Business OS right, your teams will have the tools and processes that allow them to work more efficiently. Data updates can be minimized, information that slows teams and people down is readily available, and rituals that ensure everyone is focused on the right activities are just a few of the benefits.
Collaboration is essential to the success of any business. A Business OS can help improve collaboration by providing your team with a centralized platform for goal and execution management. This can help break down silos and improve cross-functional collaboration, leading to better outcomes and higher-quality results.
A Business OS can also help you make better decisions by providing you with real-time data and insights into your business operations. By monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs) and analyzing trends, you can identify areas of improvement and make data-driven decisions that drive growth and profitability.
