From Strategy to Execution: How OKRs are a People-Powered Framework to Reach Your Goals

  • Harrisburg, PA
  • November 21

Alex Bartholomaus has helped over 100 hundred companies in bridging the gap between strategy and execution to create over $1B in business value over his career.  His program will give you the tools you need to navigate the unique challenges that executives and owners face today.  First, he’ll introduce attendees to the Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) framework used by companies like Google and Intuit to lead their industries.  This framework not only translates strategy into measurable tasks and milestones vertically through the organization, it engages people so they are more passionate about success.  If you’re concerned about navigating the new hybrid work environment, fostering team accountability, keeping remote team members focused and productive, or simply need more confidence that you’re positioned for success this year and beyond, this program is essential.

You’ll leave this presentation with a new outlook on how your organization can make future plans with the confidence they’ll be achieved.  You’ll have collaborative tools to focus your efforts while relying on management and staff to properly prioritize their day-to-day work based on your plans.  You will learn more about 3 key management motions (planning, execution and retrospective) that keep people engaged, you’ll be positioned to retain more of your key talent, and ensure that no one on your team – whether in the office or connecting remotely is unfocused and ineffective.
