The average African business or company has accurately mastered the art of crafting potentially revolutionary Strategy, either through an array of internally developed capabilities or through the help of external firms such as consulting companies. This is the first step towards business performance. The second leg is execution.
However, from several reports and studies, we have realised that the management frameworks in these organisations have further widened the gap between the teams that delivery projects and the strategy set from the top of the house. Teams and individuals across man African companies have found it difficult to understand, trace and overall align their day-to-day activities with the overall company strategy. Much more the performance tracking by organisations are still largely driven by outputs. This has contributed immensely to employee dissatisfaction, lack of engagement and overall low morale, while also reducing the probability of organisations realizing these strategic objectives
How can we address this disconnection, dissatisfaction and low morale of employees while creating better visibility for improved business performance? The proposed answer is the adoption of the OKR Framework.
We have seen how global organisations have adopted the OKR Framework to address these seemingly costly business problems, if done right. And this is what this session aims to deliver to its attendees
In this presentation, we will introduce or reintroduce attendees to the simple, yet powerful OKR Framework (OKR= Objectives and Key Results), review and discuss different case studies from organisations that have adopted the OKR framework, the common pitfalls in adopting and using OKRs and how to connect.
At the end of this presentation, attendees will;
- Be able to discuss the trends and evolution of OKR
- Develop a better appreciation of the OKR Framework as a goal setting and performance tracking framework
- Understand how to create perfect alignment between corporate or organisational strategy and project execution
- Be able to guide against common pitfalls in the adoption and implementation of the OKR Framework
- Be able to guide their leaders and teams on how to perfectly create OKRs at different levels of the organisations
