Objectives and Key Results (OKR) is a framework for defining and tracking objectives and their outcomes. Done well it’s a great model for participatory strategy deployment, but the way you introduce OKR matters as much as the framework itself.

With the powerful combination of OKR and Agendashift you’ll avoid the potential pitfalls and dysfunctions of OKR and come away with fresh perspectives on participation, leadership, and organisation design. You’ll also experience some exciting new tools for strategy and operation.

The best outcomes aren’t just metrics or targets, but the happy endings to stories in which real needs are met. Agendashift and OKR seem made for each other:

  • Agendashift: an engagement model that is strategic in outlook and steadfastly needs-based and outcome-oriented in both approach and technique
  • OKR: an operating model for strategy deployment that emphasises alignment on outcomes and transparency around progress towards them

Of all our workshops, Wholehearted:OKR delivers the most complete realisation of our wholehearted mission. It demonstrates how to create opportunities for:

  1. Authentic engagement on issues that matter
  2. Meaningful participation across strategy, development, and delivery
  3. Anticipating and meeting needs
  4. Leadership around outcomes (each inviting the other)
