Awesome goal management software

What do you like best?

It´s very easy to define, clarify and follow everybody´s goals

Now everything its crystal clear about goals. Goals we are achieveing and what goals needs to be improved, how people work align with others to reach biggers goals.

Betterworks it´s amaizing to help teams and individuals to focus their efforts in the most important things.

It´s very helpful to improve productivity

I love it.

What do you dislike?

Very often, people gets confused about how to manage bigger and mid term goals with their daily work. It`s easy to see what we are trying to achieve in a Q or month period. But BW doesn´t help you in organize your daily work, so we need to use another tools in order to do that.

The ideal would be that some how you can integrate your daily work and task organizing method with BW.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You need to have clear goals

You need to be ready and comitment to manage change

If you are not now, improve your knowledge about goal science and OKR`s. There is a lot of information on internet and BW will provide you with a lot too. But in order to get the most of the software, your process to define, set and follow goals needs to be in the right direction.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Improve productivity by improving transparency. Nobody can hide anymore

Clarify and improve understanding and how individuals and teams contribute a bigger goal and strategies.

Improve cross team collaboration, because it's easy to define responsibilities and follow up in an easy to use platform. Everybody can see whats going on.

Execution, by assigning priorities and goals, making plans realities.

Useful

What do you like best?

I like how we can share our goals with others and how you can assign a task to a colleague when creating your goal. Also the Org chart view helps to get to know who could have similar goals as you. The link between goals is excellent! It help us see how aligned with the main company goals we are.

What do you dislike?

That it automatically hides previous objectives; there's no tab in the quick view for that, but that's a small nuisance. I didn't understand well the "conversations" tab and the explanations were not very helpful.

When creating metric in a task, it doesn't learn, I use a certain unit for metrics repeatedly and have to enter it as a new one every time. Maybe something in the programming could be added for it to "learn" a unit?

That I can't assign "levels" to a goal, (eg: acceptable outcome, expected outcome and extra=mile outcome)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure employees know the theory behind the tool BEFORE implementing

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped to align employees goals to the main company goals. Helps increase transparency. Helped close the gap among employees caused by the long distances between offices.

BetterWorks brings a more granular visibility to key milestones of large projects/programs

What do you like best?

Betterworks has made the communication of the key milestones very clear.

If the milestones are captured correctly, then knowing a real time status and the progress of a milestone is very easy.

It helps to decide in advance the measurement criteria of a give Key Result

It helps to agree on the dates within which the Key Results needs to be achieved and Objectives completed

Encourages collaboration between the people who are involved in the Objectives & Key Results

What do you dislike?

One of the things which does not work very clearly is the % completion of the Objectives. Adding Key results does create some issues but that is more related to the user maturity

Recommendations to others considering the product

This should not be used as a project management tool. It is a fantastic tool to track and report on high level milestones and collaborate with the people who are involved in a give Objective or Key Results.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having a single source of truth for the real-time communication of the progress on the Objectives and milestones. Everyone across the board - Senior Executives, Project Team and the Customers of the the project can all have the same simplified view of the progress. It has reduced the amount of time spent on preparing communications

Yield Manager

What do you like best?

Easy to use interface and very intuitive. I was able to dive in and start creating objectives even before I had the official training in my office. I also like the ability to manage everything using the app, even when I am not near my laptop. The objectives are displayed on the screen in a manner that is easy to see and use. It is also easy to set up each layer for your goals. The weekly summary that is sent on Sundays is very helpful and is a good reminder to keep everything on track.

What do you dislike?

The fact that everyone can see your objectives. I would prefer the ability to control the visibility that others have into your own objectives (sharing all the details vs. sharing top level objective title only vs. only visible to direct manager, for example).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for setting up and tracking professional and personal objectives. A nice way to keep track of your progress and keep yourself motivated.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to break down my bigger goals into smaller objectives that are more attainable and had a more realistic timeframe, by using the objective setup tool in betterworks. As a new employee, I also benefited from seeing what overall objectives the company's CEO had set for himself and the company, and how it aligned down to his direct reports and so on. And I could also align my own objectives with my team, my direct manager and the rest of the company.

Simplest goals management tool I have ever come across !

What do you like best?

The ease of setting up goals, assigning them to relevant colleagues, collaboratively working towards achieving them is excellent.

The dashboards are very informative and give you a quick understanding on the performance of your projects and objectives.

Great flexibility in terms of choosing metrics of performance measurement.

What do you dislike?

It does not allow weighted average system to calculate percentage of goal achievement.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best tool to implement with least change management effort. People will get trained on the job !

Highly recommend it to all those who are interested in managing their performance better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing a large scale global program requires you to keep a lot of stakeholders updated on how is the program performing and what are the areas of attention. Betterworks has helped me in managing a complex program for which I need inputs and attention of 50+ stakeholders.

By simply spending 1 hour every week to update the goals and objectives, I am able to efficiently circulate the information that would otherwise take me 4 hours.

Benefits :

Openly sharing the objectives and related key results. Complete transparency and excellent collaboration.

BetterWorks allows me to focus on what is important rather than just being busy.

What do you like best?

The visual dashboard allows for quick realization of what to work on next or which goals need more progress.

What do you dislike?

The inability to give custom weights to certain goals over other ones makes BetterWorks difficult to spend X% more on certain goals over others. I understand that by underweighting a goal as compared to another it forces one to focus on one and not the other, but many times that is how performance works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

BetterWorks can help you focus on what is important, organizing and tracking goal progress.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'v realized that being productive is more about getting the right things done, not just getting anything done. BetterWorks allows me to focus on what matters to myself and my company.

Not only is BetterWorks a quality tool for yourself to maintain order and structure with your own work, but you can communicate to a larger audience at the same time.
