OKRs: A classic case of the tail wagging the dog…
OKRs are fantastic on paper :
Empower your teams by focusing on outcomes!
Align every team to your strategy!
Work in transparent harmony!
However, like the peloton gathering dust in her cupboard since the first lockdown, Kim emphasises that the tools do not maketh the change.
With practical examples from scaling OKRs at OVO Energy, Nat West Group, Deloitte, and more, she draws on her background as a Psychologist to explore the ways that mindset change and leadership culture need to massively change in most organisations to deliver the benefits that OKRs promise.
Kim Atherton is the founder of Just3Things, an OKR software platform initially conceptualised inside energy giant, and UK-founded Unicorn company OVO Energy, where she was Chief People Officer overseeing the growth from 50 to 2,000 employees.
Prior to, OVO, Kim was a Chartered Occupational Psychologist, consulting globally with organisations including HSBC, Virgin Atlantic, and Novartis.
