At GT I, Multiversum GmbH recommended the introduction of the “Objective and Key Results” (OKR) method. From a corporate perspective, this is a framework that offers the significant advantage of making difficult-to-quantify strategic objectives measurable, thus providing management with a tool for assessing success. Additionally, from an employee perspective, the method provides transparency regarding the goals to be achieved, which promotes the breakdown of information silos, allows for new thinking, and enhances the sense of teamwork.
A crucial first step in introducing the OKR framework was to tailor it specifically to the customer’s needs. Both management and employees received intensive training in the methodology through interactive training sessions. Thanks to a balanced combination of top-down goals (Midterm Goals) and bottom-up initiatives (Objectives and Key Results), an initial set of OKRs was created in a short amount of time. During the first OKR cycle, Multiversum served as process guardians, significantly contributing to the successful implementation. In the second cycle, the primary responsibility lay with GT I, but Multiversum supported the method’s implementation with targeted guidance at various points along the way.
