A lot of organizations say that they have a problem with always being late with setting their OKRs. For example, it’s January 15th and they still haven’t set the OKRs. What typically follows is the sense of failure, guilt, and frustration. Why are organizations late with OKRs? In my experience, the most common reason, why

The story of Mary Parker Follett is, in many ways, the back to the future type of story. Largely ignored in the 20th century, her ideas, books, and essays were living in the obscure corners of management and academic studies. Today, in 2018, her ideas are more relevant than ever. Moreover, I would say that many

Gtmhub has a feature for creating and managing org chart of your company. While some people find this feature useful in itself, in this post I wanted to explore how we use it, why it is a good idea to set it up in Gtmhub and, finally, how to do it. What is an org

Objectives & Key Results (OKRs) are a great management methodology, but implementing them is notoriously hard. Very sizeable percentage of companies that decide to implement OKRs will fail within first 6 months.

Managing people is mostly about aligning their objectives with objectives of the organization. Because these two tend to be very different, and often even mutually exclusive, things often go wrong. This list is in no way complete or even exhaustive, but it does illustrate why management is hard – and why we’ve been looking for

When people first learn about OKRs (Objectives and Key Results), a lot of times they’ll be confused how are OKRs different from KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). Admittedly, there are certain similarities between the two concepts. Two quick examples Before we start comparing the two, let us briefly examine two examples. OKRs Objective: Shorten sales lifecycle

I’ve just had a conversation with a fellow agile enthusiast and a question popped up. Namely, is “Increase new sales by 50%” a good objective? The theory or best practices say that objective should be qualitative (no numbers), and key results should be quantitative (numbers). I also happen to think that in practice this works

Someone famously said that – In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not. This November, we are organizing an OKR Masterclass in Berlin that is going to test this quote. Whereas last year in London, we focused on basics of OKRs and general theory, this year in Berlin we are
In 2012, Adobe announced it would abandon annual performance reviews. Since then, many organizations followed suit: Microsoft, Dell, Deloitte… among others. When announcing such plans, organizations often say that annual performance reviews are a “waste of time”, “cause stress” and in general are “obsolete”.
