OKR Framework for Strategy Execution
Our time-tested OKR Implementation Framework helps you in making OKRs successful from the word go. You need a partner that not only brings OKR expertise to the table, but also a deep repertoire of industry knowledge with a strong background in strategy execution and agile change management.
Nearly 70% of companies fail with their OKR Implementation, the first time. Simply getting an OKR software does not ensure success. Designing OKRs is one thing; Implementing them is another.

Implementing OKRs is by far the most crucial aspect of this framework. This means working with leaders to establish ownership and role-model execution from the top. We take pride in making things simple. Using a phased-out incremental execution plan not only makes it easy for you but also provides an opportunity to learn quickly and improve.
The efficacy of execution within the OKR framework depends on choosing the right cadence. This includes key activities such as all-hands meetings, regular progress reviews, check-ins and a fair system of tracking and grading progress. We assist you in using the CFR (Coaching-Feedback-Reinforce) methodology by coaching and co-reviewing these critical activities.
Our unique Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) model ensures we are with you every step of the way. Our ongoing support systems will provide you with the necessary Tsūrukitto (Toolkit) including the OKR Implementation Guide, Meeting Templates, Job Descriptions for OKR Champions (North Stars), OKR Assimilation Guides for new joiners, OKR Checklists and FAQs for teams. We also offer support during the quarter-end wrap-ups in the initial stages until you are confident to take over yourself.
