We work with leaders and teams who want to do more, faster. Leaders and teams craving to create better – better products, better companies, a better world.

We train, coach and implement Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) and other strategy execution methodologies.

WHY OBJECTIVES AND KEY RESULTS?

Objectives and Key Results – OKRs for short – is a goal management methodology. When you use an effective goal management methodology, your strategy gets some legs. It’s the missing link between high level strategic maps and detailed implementation plans.

WHAT OKRs CAN ADD TO YOUR TEAM

FOCUS

OKRs create focus around the top priorities in your organisation, department and team. In effect, you choose 3 objectives, that’s it.

ALIGNMENT

OKRs allow for critical assessment of challenges and dependencies. In the process, it creates alignment between teams in the organisation.

CLARITY

Taking time to articulate OKRs will remove ambiguity and ensure absolute clarity. This leaves no doubt about what will be achieved by when.

TRANSPARENCY

OKRs increase communication and engagement in teams. In turn, it allows for opportunities to celebrate the wins and learn from the challenges.

The team assisted in getting us to a much better place, much faster – in the process, we've crystalised our thoughts and got them into an actionable plan for implementation.

David Smollan, Smollan Group

The team – with the processes, clarity of thinking, capacity and energy they brought – enabled us to do things that would have been unimaginable on our own.

Rudi Botha, BetterLife Group

You’ve helped us consider our portfolio of international businesses and distill it into a set of priorities, with clear accountability, setting us up to the deal of a lifetime.

OUR SERVICES

OKR TRAINING

We facilitate and draft a set of deployment parameters through technical training and practical application. This results in alignment on terminology, purpose and scope of usage.

OKR SETTING

An experienced OKR practitioner will guide you through the process. Through this process, we will draft your OKRs together, whilst testing your thoughts with a critical thinking lens.

OKR IMPLEMENTATION

OKR Implementation is about creating an ongoing discipline. This will result in healthy business habits – a consistent cadence of regular check-ins, mid-cycle reviews, and end of cycle reflect and reset sessions.

OKR COACHING

OKR Coaching is a process of ongoing inquiry. Through this, you will engage with a coach who has seen the pitfalls of implementing OKRs before, and solving some of the challenges faced within the realities of your team.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Beyond OKRs, we support executives in the delivery of business-critical initiatives. However, we’re not rigid on project management methodologies, but rather aim to translate strategy into practical steps and actions.

PROJECT RESOURCING

Our clients often experience situations where there’s a gap in skills readily available within the team. In these situations, we can help fill the skill capacity gap and reduce the risk of missing out on critical opportunities available.
