How do you know when a promise is kept?
Ask that question of a business colleague who has adopted agile methods to speed their delivery of products and solutions to their customers and you may get an answer that surprises you. A successful business approach – one that accelerates cash flow from the top line to the bottom line – would seem like a promise that can be measured. Many C-level executives, though, are finding that measuring agile is more challenging than they would have thought.

MyObjectives is both a strategic and an operational tool that builds alignment between objectives and company goals. To make work fun (and habit-forming) game mechanics keep your teams communicating with one another on their progress, earning badges and awards as they complete work. The C-suite benefit of this approach is visibility: Visibility into how the self-managed, customer-focused, multi-disciplinary teams are building and aligning objectives to the company’s goals; visibility in to how progress is being made, where assistance is needed and rewards are deserved.
