WorkBoard’s Latest GenAI Capabilities Save Time and Improve Decisions
WorkBoard unveiled its OKR Co-Author with embedded GenAI in May 2023 to help teams define and align measurable outcomes quickly using intelligence from company strategy, prior objectives and results, and team retro discussions. Most large enterprises adopted the Objectives & Key Results (OKRs) method for strategy alignment and execution during the pandemic to better align and engage distributed teams on transformative strategies; Co-Author makes it much easier for organizations to get the full benefits of OKRs to accelerate their transformation.

Quickly building on its Co-Author momentum, WorkBoard is now extending GenAI across its strategy execution offering to:
- Generate status summaries for teams, on scorecards and in monthly business reviews instantaneously in the right voice for different audiences – rally the team or report to management.
- Cluster, summarize themes, and suggest course of action from team brainstorming and OKR retrospectives and then bring past themes into future discussions.
- Help people identify why they’re off course and how to close the gap this quarter.
- Skip building progress charts and graphs and use chat to generate them instead.
- Suggest better ways to phrase or measure objectives and key results.
- Use voice and chat to put strategic outcomes, key results, and other information into the platform efficiently.
Along with Co-Author’s ability to generate draft OKRs, these new capabilities help organizations rapidly align on business outcomes, focus efforts on the work that matters most, and address execution roadblocks more efficiently.
According to McKinsey, 49% of managerial work done by managers in the middle can be automated with generative AI. Companies rely on these managers to set direction, align efforts, remove roadblocks and report results to achieve company strategies; now with generative AI in the WorkBoard Intelligent Enterprise platform these managers can operate at their most effective and efficient.
