OKR's: How to make them actually work

Nov 4, 2021 · Melbourne, Australia

G'Day Everyone,

A number of years ago Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) came along like a knight in shining armour promising to rescue us from the horrors of KPIs and to lead is into a new nirvana of empowerment, and innovation. Like many silver bullets though, OKRs were adopted as a re-brand of KPIs giving a shiny new appearance to an old, clapped out idea without any change in performance.

There's no denying the OKRs are hard to do and that for those who do them well it's taken time to get good at them. However, you can get there faster if you're clear on what they are, why they work, and tune a couple of factors to your context.

In this session we'll discuss how to do this by:
- Reviewing what's good about OKRs and what they look like when they suck
- Identifying the qualities of a good OKR implementation versus a bad one
- Looking at four techniques to use OKRs to achieve innovation, actual outcomes, reduced quarterly overhead, and reduced complexity.

Leading the charge will be Nick Payne, Lead Consultant at Elabor8 who works with leadership teams to help them redesign their ways of working and to positively mange the process of change. He's been smashing his head against OKRs for some time now and has seen both the good and bad.

In this session he'll combine that experience with a decade of working with Agile principles, plus just enough research to come up with an opinionated viewpoint that will challenge debate or be actually helpful.

We looking forward to seeing your smiling faces over Zoom on the night. We will also be using Miro to collaborate together. Links will be posted before the event.
