What Program Grads Are Saying

The Betterworks OKR Master Certification Program is a great blend of both virtual, self-paced learning and live sessions that are interactive and informative. The small group settings allow you to develop OKR skills and gain valuable feedback about how to not only write effective OKR’s but also how to successfully implement the program, get buy in from your team and discuss what roadblocks you may encounter. I would highlight recommend this course for those who are interested in learning more about OKR’s or how to more effectively train their teams on establishing goals.

Instead of simply providing reading material, you’ll learn through hands-on practice with exercises and creating your own OKRs. Even if you don’t have any previous experience with OKRs, you’ll come away knowing how to recognize and write your own high-quality OKRs.
