“The transparency of Atiim’s software has been essential to uniting the team and focusing everyone on what really matters.” – InfoBionic
A candid conversation with Stuart Long, Chief Executive Officer, InfoBionics
Would you provide a quick overview of your company?
InfoBionic is a digital health company transforming the efficiency and economics of ambulatory remote patient monitoring processes by rapidly detecting cardiac arrhythmias while optimizing clinical and real-world utility for the users that need it most – physicians and their patients.
What do you know now that you wish you'd known when you started doing OKRs?
Getting the OKR’s right… really measure what matters. It’s not a ‘to-do’ list.
What were you using for OKRs prior to Atiim?
We were using spreadsheets (ineffective for connectivity and alignment).
Why did you choose Atiim?
Ease of use, consistency of check-ins for company-wide deployment, online resources and guides, and Atiim’s alignment chart
How did you approach rolling out your initial OKRs to your team? What challenges did you overcome during this process that you didn't expect?
We rolled it out to the executive management team first.
Challenges included getting accustomed to the Atiim workflow versus a spreadsheet execution; defining the right metric types to measure Key Results; re-establishing a cadence of weekly check-ins; and, creating a process to have team and individual reviews.
Has using Atiim improved culture, execution, teamwork, and alignment?
First, Atiim has improved the teams’ trust through transparency. The idea of measuring and recording each week, reviewing in teams both ‘asynchronous’ mode via off lines, the check-ins that meet the teams time table, and scheduled weekly meetings to discuss progress or lack of progress, has been essential to uniting the team.
