Why we created this course

The world of work is undergoing major shifts due to the influence of constant change, globalization and uncertainty. Generation Y and Z already make up a large part of the workforce and their desire for self-determination, personal responsibility and meaningfulness are becoming an integral part of all major organizations.

At the same time, we have seen many companies who either have no structured approach on how they manage people, pay and performance - or, are unsatisfied with a rather traditional approach and yearly reviews or goal setting processes. In the context of agile leadership, the way we do performance appraisals, we give feedback, we pay salary and plan careers need to be rethought.

OKRs are a proven force to make strategies actionable, but can only develop their full potential, if they are supported by an modern performance management approach.

With this course we want to provide pragmatic support, clear recommendations and build the right know-how, so that more companies can develop the right prerequisites for OKRs to develop their full force.

Your main challenges


We have collected your main challenges and will provide clarity and give options on how to deal with it.

Principles of modern performance management


You will be able to build your approach along these building blocks.


What you will learn

Our aim in this course is that you are able to identify what you should do, should not do or stop and therefore be able pick and choose a simple, agile approach that creates an impact. 

  • Our first module will provide an overview of the origins and the status quo of traditional performance management and compensation systems and why they need to change. Though you’d probably like to know how it’s done right away, this is a good starting point to understand why things don’t work anymore.
  • Module two is devoted entirely to the approach of agile performance management and New Pay, and we also look at the role of OKR. Each lesson contains a number of practical examples that will help you to choose the right measures to execute such a framework. 
  • The course ends with module three, which is about how to bring this into practice. We explain step by step on how to build a performance culture and how to realize an agile approach to the transformation process.
  • Throughout the course we have collected suggestions and best practice examples. Remember, they are only options. Hence we recommend to take note of the measures, which are interesting for you.
  • While you are able to download things we recommend to take notes as we go, so that you are designing and building your own cheat sheet. Technically you can always go back in here, repeat or fast forward. 

We know you are busy, so set your own pace to go through the whole program.
