Defining and aligning objectives and key results is a new skill, new dialogue and new practice for many teams; often even teams that have already done OKRs find their key results are more task than result and they are far from aligned. This is where OKR coaches come in!
Coach certification is geared towards individuals who will help their organizations adopt an OKR practice and who want to take an active role in improving alignment, value measurement, and results velocity. Great coaches are great teachers and guides and true change agents who embrace new ways of working and bring others along. Chiefs of staff, agile coaches, group leaders, and individual contributors can make great coaches — enabling teams everywhere in their organizations to connect to and amplify the value of their work.
