Powerful OKR Tool

2020-04-27

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.

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.

Recommendations to others considering Workboard

First, figure out what your needs are. 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. But, finding one that wants to help make it perfect and acts on that is important.

Well beyond a task management app, this is a fully functional team success app.

2014-11-05

At BTRG we can now all manage our priorities and action items more effectively and I get transparency on the status of work I've delegated and where my team is investing time and effort. The automatic weekly status reports are really the icing on the cake.

Don't Be Evil, Workboard Inc.

2015-07-28

I searched for contact numbers or email of their Billing Department or Customer Support on my account page or their whole website, or their Billing email notification--and to my dismay there is NONE!

Pros

You can do Objective Key Results (OKRs), Management by Objective (MBOs) and Get Things Done (GTD) method thru this app.

Cons

- Misleading markers to entry to subscription plan, high barriers of exit.

Great management tool

2018-12-13

Pros

Top Pros include nice user interface, the ability to create tasks easily (well, as easy as the platform allows), adjusting dates and priorities, and the ability to take notes and comments.

Cons

Top Cons - hold on a little bit for this one... The learning curve is a doozy. Plus the costs for the SASS is top of budget for premium. I'm just a previous user, so I only heard a few complaints, but still think it may be worth the use for others.

Great free resource

2019-06-30

Pros

Organizing multiple individuals responsibilities in supporting one project.

Cons

Less intuitive than I'd like though once you are in it for a week or so it becomes easier.

Keeps me on task

2015-11-12

Pros

Workboard makes it easy to stay on task and keep an eye on what my employees are accomplishing.

Cons

We've had some issues with my employees sending me an update on their to-do list, it doesn't always go thru. I also wish that when I am sharing my list with my manager that there was a way to filter out the items that have already been completed or put on pause.

Best OKR Software not in the OKR Software category

2019-01-18

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

Reasonably priced, well balanced and the interface is very clean and easy to use overall.

Cons

So, good start, Workboard, but more, more, more integrations and give me my people back for productive work.

A solid solution for agency work

2014-07-21

We need fewer status calls, which means we spend our time helping them get coverage instead of reporting on our efforts.

Pros

Each person see only their own workstreams, but I can see all the clients in a single place.

Workboard is our Marketing operations manager

2015-11-17

Pros

This frees up time for me to actually lead the team.

Cons

Workboard already manages the teams goals, the achievement, would be easy to roll that capability in?!

We selected Workboard because it not only keeps action items from falling through the cracks - but also because Workboard makes it easy to ensure each week we are goal aligned and we have prioritized the team member actions.
