Have you heard of #OKRs? Recently it got popular among tech giants such as Google, Booking, Uber, Linkedin and Twitter as a way to align an organization towards achieving its north star. OKRs is a framework which defines OBJECTIVES and KEY RESULTS which are used to track progress. While conceptually the framework sounds simple, many organizations find it hard (as always) to apply it in practice. So it was great to listen to Alvaro de Salvo from Akvo during Product School Amsterdam organized event on how to drive value with A/B testing and OKRs. Alvaro shared his lessons learnt and the most common pitfalls from working with OKRs in the NGO environment: ❌ Setting too many OKRs. ❌ Confusing activities with key results. ❌ Defining unmeasurable key results. ❌ Setting unambitious key results. ❌ Forgetting what set out. Do you use OKRs in your organization? If so, what is your experience?

Used to have OKRs for couple years. Mixed results. Gives a sense sense of purpose and structure. But things changes too often + gives room for excuses.

In this vastly changing world it's sometimes hard for organizations to imagine having a long-term (e.g. 3 years) plan. Some would simply say that it doesn't make sense in their business to think so far ahead. Well, Amdi Krogh who is currently leading Maersk North Europe Operations office would argue with you for a bit. Why? Because in 2017 there were similar discussions within Amdi's leadership team, but today after the 3-year breakthrough plan is implemented and shown its impressive results, doubts are gone. It is an immense pleasure to share with you a story written by Amdi on how Maersk North Europe Operations organization implemented their 3-year breakthrough business plan based on Hoshin Kanri principles. As an initiator of this plan, I am extremely pleased to see the business results which would have not been possible without hard work of the whole North Europe Operations organization always supported by the dedicated management and leadership teams! https://nainyte.com/maersk-hoshin-kanri/

It's December! The time for reflection and set-up of new objectives. While I like the concept of noting down your New Year's resolutions, too often I hear vaguely defined sentences, which I doubt help people to achieve more. I believe that New Year's resolutions shouldn't be a long list of actions you want to do, but rather a few personal breakthroughs which will stretch you. With my experience of using Hoshin Kanri model in business, I wrote a blog post on how to define meaningful New Year resolutions which I think could drive personal breakthroughs. https://nainyte.com/how-to-write-meaningful-new-year-resolutions/

An interesting read about how change is changing by BCG based on their experience in driving organizational transformations. I especially liked their insights about 5 different strategies to drive change: 📍A planned itinerary - clear goals and steps on how to get there. 📍A river crossing - a clear goal, but a path is unknown. 📍A hill-climbing - means for change are clear, but not the goal. 📍Scouting and wandering - neither the goals, neither the means are clear, but you want to find the next business breakthrough. 📍Escape the swamp - a clear need to change fast and substantially. Most transformation programs will require a combination of these strategies and leaders need to assess well in which situations a certain strategy fits the most. https://www.bcg.com/publications/2019/science-organizational-change.aspx?utm_medium=Email&utm_source=esp&utm_campaign=w20s&utm_description=top10&utm_topic=science_change&utm_geo=global&utm_content=201908Q3&utm_usertoken=045febd53a515df8d10fc2064ae6dbc09b498361&redir=true&_lrsc=db917965-8451-4f52-acc2-bf91ebcaaaaa&source=Elevate&medium=LinkedIn
