“Atiim has made it easier to manage the OKR process. Everybody is clear on where we are going and enjoys working together to get there!”
A candid conversation with Alex P. Bartholomaus, President & CEO, People Stretch Solutions
Would you provide a quick overview of your company?
People Stretch Solutions is a management consulting firm helping mid-market companies grow revenue and scale their organizations.
What do you know now that you wish you'd known when you started doing OKRs?
Keep it as simple as possible. Measure metrics over milestones.
What were you using for OKRs prior to Atiim?
Why did you choose Atiim?
We adopted the OKR framework and really liked how Atiim manages the information. Atiim made it easier to manage the process.
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 used an iterative process which we refined over multiple quarters.
We overcame the challenge of measuring success. If we couldn’t measure the result of an Objective, we worked hard to frame the Key Result in a way we could measure it.
Has using Atiim improved culture, execution, teamwork, and alignment?
All of the above (culture, execution, teamwork, and alignment).
It has helped us to collaborate more on execution. Everybody is clear on where we are going and enjoys working together to get there.
