Event description

Description

Objectives and Key Results (OKR) is – to use the Wikipedia definition – a framework for defining and tracking objectives and their outcomes. Done well (wholeheartedly), it’s a great model for participatory strategy deployment. Done badly... well let’s just say that you don’t want to do it badly! OKR joins Lean and Agile as one of those things for which the way you introduce it matters at least as much as the thing itelf, placing it very much within Agendashift territory.

We know that the best outcomes aren’t just metrics or targets, but the happy endings to stories in which real needs are met. How they might be evidenced remains an important question, but a different one. With that clear separation in mind, 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

With this powerful combination you’ll not only avoid the potential pitfalls and dysfunctions of OKR but come away with fresh perspectives on participation, leadership, and organisation design. And if you’re already familiar with Agendashift, you’ll experience some exciting new tools for strategy and operation.

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)

Run this workshop within your organisation and you will be creating these opportunities as you learn. Or join us in this public workshop and share with other practitioners – the choice is yours!

Who should attend?

This workshop is aimed at all agents and leaders of organisational change – whether internal or external, specialist practitioner or sponsor. Whilst the majority of attendees at our public workshops have been coaches and consultants, a significant number have held managerial and business leadership roles.

This workshop is offered both publicly and privately. Public workshops are focussed primarily on skills. You will however have ample opportunity to put them into your organisational context.

Partipants will receive a print copy of the book Right to Left: The digital leader’s guide to Lean and Agile, a key source for this workshop.

Facilitation

Your lead facilitator will be Agendashift founder Mike Burrows. Mike is the author of Kanban from the Inside (2014) and Agendashift: Outcome-oriented change and continuous transformation (2018); his third book Right to Left: the digital leader’s guide to Lean and Agile is due August 2019. Mike is known for Kanban’s values model, the Featureban and Changeban games, and as a strong advocate for participatory and outcome-oriented approaches to change, transformation, and strategy. Prior to his consulting career, Mike was global development manager and Executive Director at a top tier investment bank, and CTO for an energy risk management startup.

We will be joined by Karl Scotland, Steven Mackenzie, and Mike Haber, each of whom made significant contributions to the design of this workshop.
