Pros
Not all systems like this are the same so understanding what you need helps you to understand how beneficial features and benefits are for workboard. Second, no project management software is perfect.

Nicholas W.

At the same time, I can keep my own team focused and following through on the right work. It's clear who owns what and what's expected -- hugely helpful in a fast-paced organization like ours.

It keeps us focused on the most important items. Easy to use & share information with my team.

Cons
Knowing you have done Pros B above is now scary. Misleading markers to entry to subscription plan, high barriers of exit.

Upon getting a notice from my bank that I've been overdrawn, I checked my email, and to my dismay I discovered I've been charged the whole annual amount of $632.10.

Very costly learning experience for me as I got levied fees and had checks returned.

Best OKR Software not in the OKR Software category

Reviewed 3 years ago

OKR metrics are the next, and much improved, evolution of managing business strategy. Workboard allows me to drive my business in an efficient manner by staying faithful to the Doerr/Google methods.

Pros

Faithfully follows the OKR methodology recommended by John Doerr and used by Google and many others. For some odd reason, this top contender doesnt even show up in the right category. Reasonably priced, well balanced and the interface is very clean and easy to use overall.

Cons

I dinged it one star for a limited range of products to update results, but just one star as they are obviously trying to remedy this. Updating results is the Achilles heel of the awesome OKR system. The system demands rapid, even real time results, to be effective. Some OKR software packages don't even recognize the need for this and assume the data just magically appears. If automation is lacking,...

Powerful OKR Tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

Workboard was the software we choose to implement OKRs into our business. From a leadership point of view, it was brilliant, integrating Business Strategy with individual staff performance management and provided teams that did not have a task tracking software, a one stop shop to manage their teams day to day process. The Meetings part of Wobo is fantastic, enabling each team to link their daily / weekly cadence meetings directly to their OKRs and create minutes and actions related to them.

Pros

Powerful all in one tool to operate a business using the Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) framework, with strong integrations to other data sets for automating the import of Key Result data.

Cons

Our users found Workboard a little difficult to use and the interface a bit slow.

Great Project Management With Great Potential

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

I really like the detail and abilities in action items. We treat them as "Projects". Following from start to finish of a project with keeping people in the loop is a great feature for our company.

Cons

I have two main complaints but I am sure these are in the works. First, we would love to see a projects based calendar feature. Not just single users or groups of items but a sort of Master Calender so we can see where certain items overlap or where there might be space to move an item. The other is a Ipad app. I use one alot as a developer, so it would be nice to track things on there.

Workboard is our Marketing operations manager

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Workboard keeps my team organized and every week focused on the right priorities and target goal achievement. Removing all the action items from email is so liberating! This frees up time for me to actually lead the team. The Workboard support team is brilliantly responsive.

Cons

We would like to use the product for performance reviews as well! The module is not yet available. - hoping it is on the roadmap. Workboard already manages the teams goals, the achievement, would be easy to roll that capability in?!
