OKR Training, education and further training

Our experience from numerous OKR implementation projects has shown that If all employees have the same level of knowledge when the OKR method is introduced, this significantly increases the acceptance of OKR in the company. Online training plays an important role here, because in-house seminars can always be different, even if the content planned by the trainer is always the same. Online training ensures that all employees have the same level of knowledge. The quiz questions at the end of each lesson help to reinforce what has been learned and for self-assessment of learning progress.

In-house seminars are useful for the targeted training of OKR Coaches, Masters and OKR Process Owners – including the OKR Masterclass.

are ideal for getting started – especially compact books, such as our book “30 Minuten OKR” (Gabal-Verlag).

But books are also fantastic for consolidating previous knowledge. Our book “Mehr Fokus, Motivation und Erfolg mit OKR: Grundlagen und Best Practices” (Wiley-VCH Verlag) will help you with this, especially with the help of the Best Practices section: how can Management by Objectives MbO harmonize with OKR or replace OKR MbO? How does the “top down” and “bottom up” approach work, how are optimal objectives set and how do key results make OKR measurable? What is the optimal OKR cycle duration? How are OKR meetings conducted? OKR Planning, OKR Review, weekly OKR Meetings and much more.

Invented by Andy Grove: Setting new goals – brought to Google by John Doerr and now significantly further developed

OKR – once developed by Andy Grove, CEO Intel, then brought to Google as an investment manager by his former employee, who moved to VC Kleiner Perkins at the time. In the meantime, we, the OKR experts, have developed it considerably. You benefit from this further development in our seminars and training courses.

Confirmation of participation or certificate

We issue a certificate of attendance to all seminar participants. For seminars with certification or examination, a certificate or an English-language certificate for international verification.

Seminar fees / costs

The seminar fees are specific to the seminar. Face-to-face seminars are somewhat more expensive than remote live video seminars due to the room and expenses.

In-house seminars for organizations or companies – on request

From a certain number of participants from an organization or company, it makes sense to hold an in-house seminar instead of attending an open seminar – not least in order to be able to make organization- or company-specific adjustments to the content and create a confidential setting. Please use our form to request an in-house seminar.

Questions and answers

What is OKR Training?

Objectives and Key Results (OKR) is an agile strategy implementation and goal-setting method. In an OKR training course, you will learn about the OKR method and the OKR framework – from background and history to benefits and application. You will learn how to set, measure and track OKR targets in order to learn for the next OKR cycle.

What does an OKR Coach do?

The OKR Coach (or OKR Master, OKR Champion) supports an organization in the introduction and application of the OKR method. He/she supports teams from management level to team level in the creation of optimal OKR targets and in the implementation of meetings such as the Weekly Check-In, OKR Review and especially the Retrospective.

OKR – for more focus, alignment, commitment, motivation, transparency and success

OKR implements the mission statement, vision and mission – as well as the strategy of an organization. OKR helps to bring more focus to the entire organization, to ensure the alignment and coordination of the entire organization from management to team level, to demand and accept commitment, to create and use transparency – always keeping an eye on the result, the impact, the value contribution – and, in addition, to take ambitious and creative paths to become even more successful.
