OKR Training & Coaching

Since 2015, I've helped thousands of people in teams across world-leading organisations like the BBC, the UK Government, Wikimedia Foundation, and Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking to get the most from OKRs building a confident internal community of OKR champions along the way.

Let's talk!

Core topics covered

The FREE "Online course" and "Public workshops" introduce the core concepts and techniques below whereas the the "Team accelerator" and "Multi-team scale-up" programmes include hands-on fully facilitated sessions to put them into practice giving teams real world experience and ongoing support throughout the cycle.

OKR Foundations

Key concepts & setting OKRs

We'll talk briefly about the history, mindset, and best practices behind OKRs then learn my simple, proven technique for setting powerful OKRs which anyone can use in any team to set inspiring, measurable OKRs.

  • Quick overview of OKR background and best practice
  • How OKRs sit with your vision & mission
  • Using my OKR drafting template to set OKRs
  • Achieving organic vertical and horizontal alignment (not "rigid cascading")
  • Drafting OKRs from the outside-in (Objectives to Initiatives)
  • Drafting OKRs from the inside-out (Initiatives to Objectives)
  • Simple tests to see if your OKRs are ready to use or need more tweaking
  • Hands-on practice running an OKR setting workshop
  • Tips for running remote OKR workshops
  • OKRs & Initiatives
  • OKRs & KPIs
  • OKRs for BAU work (operations, HR, customer service, research, etc.)
  • Q&A and debrief

Scaling up

Refining, aligning, and negotiating

Refine your OKRs, learn to identify common pitfalls and how to avoid them. We'll also learn about OKR alignment and practice techniques you can use to align OKRs both vertically and horizontally across every team in your organisation.

  • Review, challenge, and strengthen draft OKRs
  • Avoiding top-down cascading
  • Encouraging "market-based" cross-team OKR alignment
  • Tips and traps for using OKRs across teams
  • Run a mini OKR "Festival" to socialise, refine, and align OKRs
  • OKRs, Pipelines, & Product Roadmaps
  • Avoiding all-or-nothing (binary) Key Results
  • Introducing "grading guides" to make binary OKRs more measurable
  • Shared OKRs and tiger teams

Organisational learning

Checking in and closing OKRs

Smooth, repeatable, informative check-ins are essential to a successful OKR practice. Done well, they show teams how their day-to-day work supports their most important strategic goals. They can inspire teams by telling teams exactly where to focus and what to do next. Weak (or non-existant) OKR check-ins can leave teams puzzled, frustrated, and disengaged.


Personalised OKR coaching

Combined with any of the training packages above reserve time with teams or individuals to talk through specific questions, ideas, and challenges that have come up during our training and during real practice with the teams. This is a chance to connect theory with reality and deal with any unique challenges and opportunities presented in your organisation. Past topics have included:

  • Dealing with real-world challenges
  • Introducing OKR cycle calendar
  • Keeping the OKR Champions community going
  • OKR tools and additional resources
  • Opportunities for further study & practice
