Agile Talent

Ensure the success of your OKR implementation with the help of 1ov’s end to end implementation programme

Program Overview

Proof of concept

This certification is part of a specialized journey within the Business Agility track and is aimed at people who are in what organizations traditionally call the Human Resources (HR) domain. They are part of an organization aiming to adopt Agile thinking and practices, irrespective of their industry. Participants will come away with the knowledge necessary to tackle new ways of thinking and working equipped with people engagement practices that are more humanistic and values-based.


Target Audience

The target audience for this certification includes people working within HR organizations in companies transforming to more Agile ways of working. Their current responsibilities may include aspects such as people development, recruitment, performance management, compensation and employee engagement / motivation. Organizational development consultants, hiring managers and Agile transformation leads exploring the people and structural aspects of transformations will also find this curriculum compelling.

OKR Operating model

To many OKR initiatives fail from ‘Zombie OKR’s‘. The mechanics of OKRs are adopted but not the essence, the commitement of the operational heartbeat that drives performance management and the investment of time into making them part of the organisations heartbeat does not occur; in many instances the OKR framework is blamed.

1ov creates an OKR playbook and operating cadence fit for your needs based on our deep expertise of organsiational design, agile and people. Our operating model comes with a fully developed set of inisght and metrics to gain a deeper understanding to how you organisation is operating, where the gaps are and where support is needed. We will establish operation sessions and use this deep insight to help agility flourish in your organisation.

OKR Training

Leveraging the knowledge gained in our initial asssement 1ov can determine the level of training and support likely needed by your people. From this we create and deliver a training program designed to offload as much capablity as possible in order for your people to start the process of training others and spreading knowledge across the enterprise.

In our experience its the OKR builiding blocks of Vision, Mission and Purpose that need revisiting. 1ov’s team are not just OKR experts but experienced Product Owners, System Thinkers and Service Designers that can help you revist the essence of your organisational and product strategy, ensuring visionary thinking, engagement, ownership emerges from OKR work; moving past ‘Zombie OKR’s‘ and unfufiled promise.
