Lattice was able to link in with core OKRs whereas from my memory, Small Improvements didn't support this goal setting and tracking framework. While it was good for sentiment and management frameworks, it was unable to connect with the greater company vision as well as Lattice - that was the reason that we moved.

While still far from perfect, Lattice has much stronger goal-setting and 1:1 features (see my list of areas for improvement above).

At another company, we put all OKR in Confluence and used Google Drive (specifically Google Docs) for 1:1 notes and performance evaluations. While it may seem cumbersome to conduct something like a performance review process via Google Docs, I appreciated the flexibility that it offered. I also still think that shared Google Doc is a perfectly fine tool for 1:1 notes (it even has assignable tasks now), and Confluence is a perfectly fine tool for defining OKR and tracking progress. Keep it simple (c).

We looked at ADP Workforce Now and Workday HCM but weren't bought into those platforms and it didn't make sense for us to use those alternatives to Small Improvements.

The only other thing I can compare to Small Improvements is just general internal review processes in organizations. I have never used a tool similar to Small Improvements, and think it's a great idea. I really love that my company uses it, and think I'll continue to use it in the future.
