Lamorte, in his most recent http://www.OKRs.com blog introduced Alliance to his followers as “a Sparkling New Player in Enterprise Goal Management”. Lamorte commented that: “In my role as Enterprise Goal Management (EGM) Analyst with Eckerson Group, I get to meet with the next generation of “goals software” players.
I recently met Chris Pieper over lunch at UC Davis, where I also enjoyed the best years of my life as an undergraduate. Chris had a sparkle in his eye that took me back to my college days. Alliance just announced their market introduction with an open beta period for MyObjectives. Their solutions focus on ‘team-level scorecards’ and build upon past management methodologies such as Balanced Scorecard, MBOs and OKRs with an integration of Gamification.
As for sparkle, check out Alliance’s short video on the MyObjectives site. You’ll see that sparkle when Chris talks.” If you watch closely, you might catch the sparkle in my eyes as well!”
Darcy Fleming, Alliance’s Business Development and Marketing Director, commented, “We are very excited about our partnership with Ben and his community of OKRs advocates. With Ben’s support, we hope to introduce the opportunities for Management by Gaming to the OKRs community and to showcase exciting new software options to support implementations.”
