Yorglass greatly emphasized creating a culture triggered by their company strategy. They had linked their level execution tracking with the company strategy, which made the reason for the company's existence very clear to all levels of employees. On the other hand, their OKR processes were linked to a performance and rewards system, causing misunderstanding and conflict with the core operating mindset of OKR methodology.
The difference between OKRs and KPIs was only sometimes clear to everyone. The company had yet to promote team-level accountability. The connection to the performance system was blocking employees from being bold and taking initiatives that might appear risky. At this point, Melon jumped in first to help them diagnose what they could do differently and then put it into action.
We first needed to understand how the existing system worked. We did that through qualitative and quantitative research:
Melon Health Check Survey
Managerial Level Workshop
All the input and data were analyzed and presented to the Management team for action planning. We not only diagnosed but also created an end-to-end roadmap that will help Yorglass correctly implement OKRs, and Melon will continue to guide and coach them through their OKR execution pilot.
Melon is proficient with the whole concept of OKR, and they helped us internalize it as a company. OKR is not just a system, it is a mindset, and I see that this is where the complexity begins. It is not only a set of rules because vision/mission & strategy integrate into the whole way of working. We appreciate that Melon provides services in such an important area. Knowing the customer's needs is key to Melon's success. In such projects, a one-for-all recipe would not work, and a tailor-made best solution should be provided, which is what we received from Melon. They delivered to-the-point analysis and helped us discover what we needed to do differently. We worked hard with Melon's guidance to adopt the OKR mindset and never give up on OKRs. Thanks a lot for all your contributions.
