Execution isn’t easy – even for teams that have tried OKRs before. For the Smollan Group, while they recognised the importance of OKRs from a strategy execution perspective, they weren’t experiencing the full benefits of OKRs as expected. Our team was brought in to reset OKRs and help bring focus to the right strategic objectives, as the group were trying to do too much, often duplicating efforts indicating a lack of alignment and transparency.
By using OKRs to articulate goals, teams were able to crystalise their thinking and create focus, alignment and clarity on the way forward. Further, by creating a common language through OKRs, teams were able to effectively create space for the right strategic conversations to create focus to drive the Group forward.
