We are proud to announce that between the 20th22nd of March 2019, Alina Miertoiu, Senior Consultant for The KPI Institute, hosted the first Certified OKR Professional 3-day training course in Kuala Lumpur.

OKR

Participants from various functional areas, such as trainers, consultants, sales professionals, HR professionals, CEOs or IT Product Development joined us for this learning experience.

The main expectations of the attendees from the course were to:

  • Understand what OKRs are;
  • Understand what key results are and how to set them;
  • Understand the difference between OKRs and other Performance Measurement Tools;
  • Understand how to align OKRs between different organizational levels, especially at the employee level;
  • How to set OKRs for specific functional areas.

Course journal

The C-OKR training course provides a deeper understanding on how to set and work with OKRs, in order to support fast decision-making and innovative thinking.

The three days learning experience blends the theory and best practices, with case studies meant to increase the understanding of the main concepts through practical applications.

Day I

The most engaging part of Day 1 was the exercise highlighting what makes the OKR system a hot topic nowadays, and how is it different from KPIs or MBO.

Attendees were also introduced to the concept of stretched goals, which are meant to push the employees and the organization to do more than what is expected and to the various types of OKRs, such as aspirational and committed ones. It was definitely a very challenging day, with a lot of questions being asked and several debates taking place.

Day II

During Day 2, which was a more practical and hands-on day, the participants’ view on performance measurement and cascading was challenged.

Emphasis was placed on the importance on having all employees able to understand the strategic objectives of the organization, and create quarterly personal objectives, which go beyond just operational work, focusing on adding value and working towards achieving strategical objectives.

Day III

Day three was quite dynamic, since it was wholly dedicated to a third case study for OKR selection and alignment, and ended with these OKRs’ review.

Based on the data provided, participants were asked to simulate intermediate or final OKR review sessions, while I, as the facilitator, took part as the responsible employee for those OKRs.

I made sure to play the “bad cop” role for the first time, so that the review could feel more than just a simulation, with attendees considering this exercise one of most successful one.

Attendees were invited to express their learning needs and expectations from the course:

  • Understanding what is a Performance Management System (PMS) based on KPIs and how to design it

  • How to bring KPIs from the strategic to the lower managerial levels
  • How to improve and enhance the Organizational Strategy through the PMS
  • Understanding how to address and cover performance gaps, in a formal and structured manner
  • How to measure staff performance and team performance
  • What types of rewards and recognition systems are recommended to connect to a PMS

Course journal

The C-PM training course provides the pillars, tools, and resources required for the effective implementation of the Performance Management Framework. In the first 2 days of the training course, we focused on the 6 pillars that need to be applied to ensure performance improvement, starting from data analysis and reporting, continuing with decision-making and initiative management, and ending with learning and building a performance culture.

Day I

Generally speaking, the most appreciated part of Day 1 was the exercise that highlights the differences between 13 performance-related concepts, ranging from vision and mission to KPIs, targets, and tasks. Participants found extremely relevant the tools that support the implementation of the Performance Management System, starting from the Desired State of Evolution and Strategy Map, to the Portfolio of Initiatives and Initiative Documentation Form.

Day II

The most engaging learning experience of Day 2 was the Performance Review Meeting, where participants took on different roles, such as Performance Manager, CEO and KPI owner. Besides having fun, the attendees understood how important it is to make decisions based on performance data and to have a rigorous preparation prior to the meeting.

Day III

These six pillars discovered in the first 2 days were applied on the 3rd day, in 12 scenarios, starting from different levels across the company, all the way to diverse capabilities and different stakeholders. All the learning has been integrated into a final simulation, which ended up being extremely dynamic for the participants as they simulated the process of airplane production.

To ensure a smooth learning experience, the training course blended in toolkits, templates, case studies, and best practices examples from some of the most successful organizations worldwide, as well as thought-provoking exercises.
