“After completing one on one setup workshops with TBG I was concerned that the course would be too easy, I was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn’t. The Activator okr training programme consolidated my prior knowledge and the Coach programme really made me think. The sessions around humans and change and psychological safety were really enjoyable and helped me re-invent how I ran and participated in meetings.

The exam was a challenge and a good one! The questions were excellent and really made me think about what I had learnt and how to apply that in a practical way.  The training materials are great, with a mix of reading and videos. I found them engaging and interesting, in particular the Personal Learning Log helped me keep track of my thoughts and ideas as we went through the programme. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to get a thorough grounding in all aspects of OKR implementation. This will set you up for success.”

“The TBG Coach Course is a great opportunity to measure just how much you know about OKRs in theory and practice. The content is very informative and the contributions within the cohort were great. It’s nice to see how various businesses have adapted OKRs to suit their world, and this understanding benefits everyone with fresh perspective.”

Nic Williamson, Senior Business Analyst at Derivco Analytics

OKR training FAQs

 

We’ve pulled together a list of questions we’ve been asked by other Academy graduates to help you decide which course to enrol on. If we still haven’t managed to answer your questions about the Academy, get in touch.

What do the OKR training courses involve?

Our OKR training courses are made up of a blend of e-learning and workshop learning (excl. Activator). We can facilitate a closed cohort for your organisation and you can spread out your learning over a period of time, so there’s no huge time commitment.  

 

 

Here’s a quick summary of our OKR training options and what to expect:

 

Activator – 100% eLearning for individuals that are new to the OKR process. Gain access to a selection of OKR training materials put together by our experts. In this course, we’ll teach you how to build impactful OKRs and use them for long-term success. 

 

Coach – Created for those looking to improve their teams’ OKR process. This course will go through the origins of OKRs, managing the OKR framework and how to translate strategy into OKRs. We’ll also help your team improve their coaching skills. A combination of eLearning and video training and workshops that take place over Zoom. A final exam and practice-based assessment (optional) will take place at the end of this programme. 

 

Master – For those who want to take control of OKR implementation and the on-going management of OKRs across their organisation. This includes modules on creating powerful OKRs, best practices for implementation, improving coaching skills and more. This course includes video training, Zoom workshops and eLearning. You’ll also take a final exam and practice-based assessment (optional) at the end of this course. 

How much time will the OKR training course take?

As Activator is a 100% online OKR course, you can sign up at any time and complete the course at your own pace.


Coach is a 4-month OKR programme, Master is 5.5 months. There is some self-study, to begin with, in the first 2 weeks which takes about 5 hours. Then follows a pattern of weekly 90min-2hr zoom OKR workshops with about 45min of self-study preparation required. The programmes round off with written examinations which students are given 2 weeks to complete.

Do I need to attend every OKR training session?

Ideally, yes. To get the most out of our OKR training course, we recommend attending every training session. But we appreciate students might have to miss the occasional workshop which is why we record them as a backup so they don’t miss out.

How much does OKR certification cost?

OKR certification costs vary depending on the OKR training programme you choose. Here at TBG, we have three options to choose from:

 

Activator – £199

Coach – £2,750

Master – £1700 after completion of  the Coach course (10% discount available if you purchase the Coach and Master together)

 

You’ll get an OKR certificate upon the successful completion of each course. 

Is there a discount?

There are discounts available for organisations who want us to run a closed cohort for them (min 6 students). We also have a specific rate for non-profits. Get in touch to discuss this with us further.

Who is the awarding body?

Being pioneers in OKR training and qualifications, we are having to work with a number of awarding bodies to define the standards for accreditation and OKR certification. We will announce our selected partner as soon as possible.

Do I need to do Masters or can I sign up later?

You can choose to continue onto the OKR Master programme once you have completed OKR Coach, or you can go for it and decide to sign up for both.

Are all of the OKR workshops online?

Activator is 100% self-study e-learning with a marked end of course assessment. If you progress on to Coach and Master, the format becomes a blend of self-study followed up by practice-based workshops.

How long does the Activator course take?

It depends. If you are only doing Activator, then you can work through it at your own pace. If you are doing it as part of Coach or Master, then you’ll typically have 2 weeks to work through it.

How will I be assessed?

At the end of the Activator OKR training course, there is a short assessment that comprises both written and multiple-choice questions which are designed to test your knowledge retention.

At the end of Coach and Master OKR training courses, there are written exams that are completed online and are designed to test your understanding of the skills and techniques you will have learned and your ideas on how to apply them in a number of scenarios.

What are the benefits of OKR training for businesses?

Investing in OKR training can benefit your business in many ways. It can improve employee engagement and morale, encourage strategic alignment and bring the people in your organisation together. This can help you boost long-term growth and increase profit margins over time.

OKR training can help to improve your managers’ confidence in the OKR process. As well as giving them the tools to motivate and support their teams when implementing OKRs.
