Virtual: OKRs, KPIs, Metrics, Goals, and Starting with Why

OKRs, KPIs, Metrics, Goals, and Starting with Why

Humans have a tendency to focus on whatever is being measured and modern leaders have numerous models to choose from when configuring their teams’ performance management expectations. So why do many teams still report misunderstandings around goals and metrics? How is it that some teams can achieve their metrics but still feel unsuccessful? When leaders jump too quickly into detailed planning, even goal planning, their vision of “why” remains fuzzy and misalignments between metrics and true success become almost inevitable. After all, OKRs, KPIs, and similar systems are tools that are only as strong as their users. This talk imbues attendees with a personal understanding of the importance of beginning with “Why” (and then Why, Why, Why, Why!) and then draws clear connections from the resulting vision to effective metrics, referencing OKRs, KPIs, and other popular approaches. Get ready for a return to basics that will prepare your team for a turboboost towards true success!
