OKR Coaching

OKR coaching helps to train teams and leadership on the OKR methodology and ensure effective outcomes for the organisation.

what we do

Our OKR Coaches are transformation experts who can design, plan and execute your OKR adoption and implementation. We also support organisations that have already adopted OKRs, facilitating the organisational culture change necessary for sustained OKR success. 

Our OKR Coaches are highly experienced, they have worked across multiple sectors and organisational sizes which means we can design and support an OKR transformation suited to you and your culture.

how we do it

OKR transformation design

How will you adopt OKRs, what will the impact be on your organisation and what is the investment required? 

OKR Coaching

We provide OKR coaches to support OKR change initiatives with expertise and credibility.

OKR Team Coaching

One of the most effective approaches for aligning and optimising the wider potential available from the whole group.

Why an OKR coach? Presenting complex things in a simple way disguises the complexity, and this is Achilles heel of OKRs. Adopting OKRs will impact on your organisation in many ways yet most organisations fail to acknowledge and understand the challenge. 

To really achieve the benefits OKRs can deliver, any adoption of the OKR methodology requires a level of investment into planning for the impact of the change, and management of the benefits expected.

An OKR coach brings that experience, which can help save time, money and resources. The OKR coach will help to navigate common problems and pain points in the adoption process. Our goal is to leave you with an energised and sustainable change process that delivers the benefits you planned.

Organisations can be tempted into abandon OKRs when it does not provide the benefits expect, perhaps you are event suffering from adoption fatigue. Our OKR coaches can re-energise your efforts.

OKR training

We train in multiple aspects of OKR from OKR Foundations through to OKR Implementation Expert, OKR Coach Expert and tailored closed door training for organisations in need.

Nearly everyone understands the benefits they expect to get from OKRs, but very few understand the investment required or how difficult it will be. It’s because the focus is on how to write an OKR, not how to use OKRs as a Strategy Management Framework.

client feedback

Amazing. Best learning experience since starting Agile 13 years ago.

Really helps with the ability for teams to innovate/hypothesise around an outcome, then measure if we’re succeeding.

Agile Coach

The training and support have been first class.

The concepts and methodology are actually much more difficult than it seems, 1ovmany has been brilliant at simplifying the logic with examples.
