The OKR Method is the world’s most comprehensive and freely available guide for the implementation of OKRs that any organisation, coach or trainer can use without the need for a license.
The OKR Method is an attempt to create a lightweight approach that allows organisations to adopt and implement OKRs with speed and certainty. The Method has been designed as an ‘Overlay Framework’ to your existing operating model thereby reducing the requirements for major internal surgery and minimising the impact during its implementation.
The OKR Method has not been designed as a recipe book for use without prior experience. It is designed to be a non-proprietary method that anyone can use, skills which are transferable, but it is recommended that OKR experts and coaches are consulted in the rollout of the Framework. This is essential for the maintenance of a lightweight framework that does not include many elements or the soft skills required to implement OKRs well.
We also recommend that an OKR Software platform is used to obtain the most benefit from OKRs, however, we highly recommend that you work with OKR Implementation coaches externally from the Software provider to ensure all aspects of the implementation are provided with equal focus.
Yes, you can be trained in the OKR Method. Anyone can train you, however, we do recommend that you first consider Trainers that are approved by The OKR Method team.
Yes, all you need do is contact the OKR Method team and demonstrate you have the training materials to support the OKR Method.
The OKR Method is not an accreditation scheme or authorisation body. It only approves trainers who can demonstrate their skills and material reflect the essence of The OKR Method in helping organisations to adopt OKRs successfully.
The Method is creating a common language for the benefit of all, similar to how Scrum created a language that made hiring and integration of staff into your eco-system very simple. Let’s do the same for OKRs.
