OKR as the starting signal for MDI –
What we’ve learned from 1,5 years agile leadership!


Dear reader,


2017 was an exceptional and memorable year for MDI. It was the most successful year in the company’s history. At the same time, it was the year in which we decided to introduce the agile OKR method and to leave hold of typical structures.

Today, one and a half year after the introduction of OKR, MDI has become an agile company. We’ve tried out many methods ourselves and shared our experience about the Autonomy Day, the Design Thinking Workshop and the Lego® Serious Play® Workshop with you on our blog. Now we wanted to take a look on the big whole. That’s why we asked ourselves in our latest article: how did the agile methods help us and how have they changed us as a company and as a team?

But not only in the past, a lot has had happened. Also in the future, we are facing many exciting changes. After all, we have a new cooperation partner – WhatAVenture – a Viennese consulting company that is specialized in innovative solutions and start-ups. We are also very happy that WhatAVenture will take over the module “be stragile” as part of our certification course “Agile Leadership”, starting in September 2018.

We are looking forward to offering you even more innovative and tailor-made solutions in the future!

Until then,

All the best from your MDI team
