Driving outcomes is a choice. You can choose to put the effort into creating team goals which will drive real business value. Alternatively, you take the easy path by focusing on output. A path which ultimately will get your team nowhere.
The path for outcome focused leaders is clear. It all starts with audacious goals which connect and align people to a common purpose and strategy. Companies like Google, Intel, AfterPay and countless others use Objectives and Key Results (OKR) to connect teams and drive radical growth.
OKRs are like magnets. They help teams align to focus on what matters most. It creates an incredible measure of progress for teams creating valuable customer outcomes as they go. Simple in their format, while challenging to get the framework right.
The SKILLFIRE OKR Enablement approach creates a change movement from within which creates a painless transition through active training and coaching. This is supported by clear practices, processes and tools which enable success.
Our passion is helping business embed OKR from our offices in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.

We follow a structured approach to embedding OKRs, in a sustainable and codesigned manner.
Our approach to co-design follows a structured ‘Lean Change Management’ format bringing in your most passionate staff to lead the change as OKR Champions.
Following Lean Change practices we establish a regular forum for the OKR Champions to take a lead role and be accountable for the implementation of the changes.
The activities outlined below are tied to discrete outcomes, with regular checkpoints throughout the activity, and a clear checkpoint at the end of the activity seeking approval to move onto the next activity.
OKR is a powerful tool to drive focus, inspire people and create outcomes.
As we discovered through our recent survey "Harnessing OKRs during the pandemic", it's true, that its value shines when it comes to disruption.
