AN UNBIASED GUIDE TO PRACTICAL GOAL SETTING WITH OKR

The OKR Effect ft. Bisnode

The OKR methodology has changed the course of several well-known companies, most notably Google. It's a revolutionary goal-setting technique that forces organisations to focus on the goals that matter and drive exponential growth.

OKRs are meant to inspire, to align your people with the organisation's mission and vision. However, the same rules don't apply to all companies. This principle might remain the same, but the implementation differs.

So, how can companies that run on a different scale than Google customise and adopt OKR?

The OKR Effect ft. Bisnode

ART AND SCIENCE BEHIND OKR

Objectives and Key Results

“Every company needs to interpret and adopt OKR differently. What worked for Google may not work for others, so it’s pointless to try and copy how Google used OKR, but rather draw inspiration from their way of thinking and customise OKR to the needs of your company.”

- Cecilia Westerholm Beer, CHRO at Bisnode.

Cecilia, and other modern HR professionals who believe in the agile way of working and driving the business forward, resort to OKR to align the entire organisation with one common purpose - the business objectives that matter.

To understand the art and science of OKR, and most importantly, how it can be adopted by SMBs and large enterprises of varied capabilities, we sat down with Cecilia for multiple knowledge-sharing sessions.

Why does Winningtemp use an emoji scale?

One of the most common questions we’re asked is why we use an emoji scale to gather employee feedback. We get it. We know emojis might initially feel a little juvenile or lightweight. Perhaps like they’re prioritising style over substance. But our use of emojis isn’t a style decision. It’s a profoundly important practical decision — and a big reason Winningtemp is so effective.
