Focus, Alignment, and No Duplicate Work

We use BetterWorks to share top company goals, align team goals with our top goals, and have quarterly conversations about our goals and progress with our teams. Being able to see the goals across the entire company enables transparency and alignment among the cross-functional teams as well as our different departments.
  • Neat and easy to understand
  • Easy to sort by different critera
  • Shows how goals roll up in a tree/chart
  • It's sometimes hard to see ONLY your milestones and goals
  • Having more default units of measure might be nice (or being able to save your own custom ones)
  • Native integrations with software (like HubSpot) would be great
As a company that has nearly doubled in size in less than a year we've really had to make a conscious effort to over communicate and be transparent about or work to both stay focused and not duplicate work. BetterWorks has worked really well for us to be able to share progress, celebrate wins, stay focused, and collaborate across departments to best leverage our unique skills to achieve our top company goals. I'm not sure this kind of platform would have been necessary a year ago when we were much smaller (fewer than 50 people) but now that we're crossing 100 team members it's been...I'd say vital to keeping us on track.

Game changer for aligning organisation goals

[It's] Used by the whole organisation for aligning, sharing and tracking key/strategic objectives for all layers of management.
  • Amazing user experience
  • Gamification and social
  • See alignment of your objectives to the top leadership
  • Seeing all people in the org and their objectives is not so intuitive
  • Mobile app has some bugs
Most suited for aligning and tracking key objectives. Not suited for project management.

BetterWorks for StartUps

Score 7 out of 10

The entire company uses BetterWorks to keep track of personal and team goals, while seeing how the company is progressing overall.
  • Team management
  • Quarterly reviews
  • Ability to track progress easily
  • The ability to view all company members' goals
  • A detailed tutorial would be useful, especially with real examples of goals related to the industry
It is great for small to medium sized companies that would benefit from BetterWorks. It encourages workers to improve their skills and grow as professionals on a team. I guess that it would not be as useful for large corporations that have well established teams and projects. The exception for large corporations would be to use it to track the progress of interns or newly hired workers.
