After a couple years of annual goal-setting and planning that seemed disconnected from the greater office, the Operations Team at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center decided to try something new. They implemented the “OKR Method” of goal-setting, used by Google and Intel (and other blue chip firms), which quickly took hold throughout the office – entirely transforming how Development thought about operating plans and connecting daily work to annual planning. Learn how BIDMC now conducts their annual goal-setting and how the effort unifies the office towards a singular focus – every day, every week, every month, every quarter. This presentation will cover: what is an OKR and how does this method work, tools to help you implement in your office, and how BIDMC goals are tracked and measured – to ensure you stay on track throughout the year.
