"Alignment, Engagement and Results"

What do you like best?

Quick and easy way to understand the status of strategic initiatives. Too many managers get surprised at the end of a quarter when an objective is missed -- even though employees knew all along. The Khorus software is an indispensable tool to align employee efforts to achieve corporate goals and creates fact-driven conversation space(s).

I also like the light-weight employee evaluation module ("Talent"). Again, it creates a rhythm to having bi-directional conversations about ways team members and managers can improve their performance.

The system sends automatic reminders to employees once a week so there is no excuse to update and the helpful dashboards give a synopsis when goals aren't completed/updated/etc.

What do you dislike?

No negatives. (Now how do I write that in 40 characters?)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Employee adoption is a key issue to track. Unless/until your team understands "what's in it for them" adoption (and thus efficacy) may be limited. In my experience, purchasing professional services to help guide implementation and adoption is well worth the investment.

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

Alignment is the key issue we're addressing. Too often people are told "what to do" but have little context for "why it matters." Khorus helps people find purpose in their work. E.G. When I do "X" it impacts Corporate Level Goal "Y".

"A must have for Strategic Planning"

What do you like best?

The ability to update progress on a weekly basis. Too often goals are set at beginning of quarter and individuals and teams don't even revisit the actual outcomes until 2 weeks after the quarter ended. The result is they chose to react to the biggest fires of the day and not commit to the goals they determined were key in order for the organization to meet it's key objectives.

What do you dislike?

People see goals and the talent module and think Khorus is (or should be) something else that what is truly is - a strategic planning tool designed to give the CEO impactful insights into how the organization is performing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is easy to understand the concepts in Khorus. The change it can bring is powerful, but it requires effort of everyone in the organization to use it. If you are committed to it, you can do great things. If you think you can just turn it on and it will handle goal setting and goal completion then expect to fail.

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

Gives our organization the ability to have a quarterly level set about our goals from the top down and it empowers individuals and teams to highlight progress or challenges early so that course corrections can be made. It has been helpful in stripping away siloed views of different groups and get us to focus on core corporate objectives.

What Strategic Planning solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Gain visibility into comapny performance against strategic objectives"

What do you like best?

Khorus is an excellent tool for ensuring everyone in the org is aligned to the strategic objectives. All employees know how their work supports the company's mission and goals.

Weekly insights from all employees provide early warning when important initiatives are at risk so that management can take action to avoid downstream impacts. At-a-glance dashboards pinpoint the risk areas.

It is a great tool for keeping meetings between managers and employees focused on the important things.

Its efficient employee performance management (review) process is so much better than traditional methods. It keeps the review focused on performance against clearly defined goals instead of arbitrary and subjective manager comments.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the navigation is not as intuitive as I would like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Khorus requires organizations and their leaders to be committed to creating good goals and instilling a culture of transparency and accountability throughout the org. The best results typically take 2-3 quarters to achieve, not because of the product but because that's how long it takes to really embrace and institutionalize this kind of management approach. The benefits make it very worthwhile.

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

Better alignment and communication with remote employees.

Clarity on strategic objectives throughout the organization.

More efficient manager/employee meetings.

Employees appreciate the focused feedback in performance reviews.

"Khorus provides insight"

What do you like best?

That it breaks the year down into 12 week increments and "forces" employees to truly stop and evaluate what they can accomplish during that time.

The ability to view my team's and the company's goals allows for transparency with their work and accountability their work effort. This translates to leaders being able to intervene in a timely manner when issues arise and thus help team members in getting their goal back on track.

What do you dislike?

While it reinforces intentionality with work efforts, there are times when I find that employees are just checking the box until the quarter begins to wind down. THEN they start to really evaluate, mark the update correctly, and log notes to justify short-comings, etc. I'm not sure what can be done to assist with this, but have wondered about different questions, required notes, etc.

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

Khorus has allowed our CEO to have insight into the business , even while being pulled away more and more as the business grows. And, as I mentioned previously, we are able to identify areas of concern and handle them more quickly. This compliments our belief that you will fail, but fail fast and fail forward.

What do you dislike?

Some of the internal navigation wasn't initially intuitive for me.

"For CEOs Who Want to Stay Focused on Key Strategic Goals "

What do you like best?

I like the fact that quarterly as the CEO, it requires me to think about the direction of the company and communicate those priorities to every level of the company. I like that is on line and accessible anytime and anywhere. Most importantly, the transparency related to performance is excellent.

What do you dislike?

I like the product and I appreciate the way in which they are constantly taking feedback and improving the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You want to consider Khorus if you are serious changing the performance culture.

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

We are solving the issue of strategic planning and thinking across the organization. It creates an opportunity for the company to communicate clear goals and priorities. To date, we have achieved plans that we have talked about month over month in one quarter because of the weekly updates. It has also had us rethink our metrics and reducing the number lag measures.

"Run the company"

What do you like best?

Khorus allows for our company to set our priorities for the quarter, have everyone align to them, and also helps us execute what we set out to go do. In addition, the tool is designed to have employees provide updates on how those initiatives are going, which is truly beneficial and helps us adjust if needed in real time.

What do you dislike?

A few product enhancements would be beneficial to do additional reporting

"Easy to use, good for goal setting and keeping on task."

What do you like best?

The program is simple to use. That makes it great for setting goals, and keeping to them.

What do you dislike?

The measurement side of things could use a little work. The data is there, but not as easy to access as it could be, meaning some lost time pouring over information.

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

We used it, previously, for planning and developing strategy.
