💼 New case study with Flowhaven!

💼 New case study with Flowhaven!

Flowhaven, a Finnish scale-up, was growing fast, transferring from one big team to departments, and the desire of the company was to accelerate even more. The challenge was how to grow from being founder led to being leadership team led and still maintain the collaborative company culture where everyone’s expertise is valued. It became clear that to achieve this Flowhaven would need to change their strategy execution system and they opted for implementing OKRs.

Knowing what they didn’t know, Flowhaven decided to look for a partner to ensure this change and implementation could be done with the maximum possible speed and fewest possible errors. With 
a proven methodology and supporting digital application, Tangible Growth was chosen for the task.

In our new case study we tell you how we helped Flowhaven change their strategy execution modus operandi to OKRs while honouring and strengthening their company culture and achieve the following outcomes in only 10 weeks:

🏆 Bringing alignment within the leadership team and across all other teams  

🏆 Rollout of the Tangible Growth application

🏆 Changing how strategy is created and executed in the organization


How our client describes the collaboration:

“The biggest revelation working with TG and creating game plans was the discovery of the interlocks. Of course, we ‘knew’ that no team works in a silo, but having the visibility of the interlocks, forcing us to recognize what we need from each other to be able to succeed, was eye opening.”

– Hanna Raeluoto, VP of Operations at Flowhaven

October release: improved UI

October release: improved UI

We have been hard at work to improve the experience for you and we are proud to present our latest improvements to our UI

We are rolling out the new release during week 42, starting on weekend of 15-16th October 2022.

  • You will see the new UI once you login to the app. If you do not see the new UI automatically, and want to speed up the process, you can force the app to check for updates. To do this, navigate to your profile picture in the top left corner of the app and click on the version number.

Why did we update the UI?

Our aim is to provide all TG users with the best design and experience possible. We want to do this by listening to our users and following best practices. For the UI update this means:

  1. Clearer and simpler use – we focused cleaning up the navigation to raise the intuitiveness of our product. This means, using TG becomes easier and faster for you.
  2. Improved coherence – strongly related to the previous, we aimed at taking the clarity and simplicity to all parts of the product ensuring the ease of use is consistent.
  3. Faster release cycle – we have worked on improving our design library and system (the building blocks, elements and logic we use in our product), which means that in the future we can be even more efficient in releasing new features. This is a very important process improvement for our 'under the hood' machine.

Key things that have improved:

  • Your content is at focus. We have faded away our own UI to make your content shine.
  • You can now comment on Objectives and Key Results. And tag people to notify them of your thoughts. You can also use our new rich text editor to highlight your message.
  • Key Result editing has changed, you can now edit all KR values from the same Key Result view. No need to pop-out an update dialog and all the comments and context available to you. And then comment your update in Rich Text.
  • You can search for OKRs in addition to people and teams. This is awesome, you can find across your organisation if somebody is already working on something similar.
  • You can create filters in the Objectives view. And the Objectives view has been cleaned up also to contain either list or card view of the teams. 
  • The Objective Align and Chart views have been improved. Check them out, now you can see each team and Objective status more clearly under Objectives. Really useful for seeing where in the organisation somebody might need help.

That's it, enjoy the new UI! We are happy to any thoughts or ideas you might have at product-feedback@tangible-growth.com

We will continue to improve the UI, bring new functionalities, and work on further simplifying the solution to make it even easier to use.

Insights are now available for teams!

Insights are now available for teams!

Ever had a need to gather Individual Insights from only your team and not your whole organisation or transformation program? It's now possible to ask Individual Insights from just your team! 🔥

In short, a new tab is visible on the Team pages that brings the Insights feature to single teams - the questions asked here will not cascade to the teams below. All the same functionality as for Insights in Transformation Programs is available.

How it works

  • Only the team members and the team lead can answer to insight surveys for a team
  • The team lead, the lead of any team above that team or Change Managers can create Insights Surveys for teams
  • The team lead, the lead of any team above the team, Change Managers and members of said team can view the results of a survey

If you want to learn more how to use Insights within your team, read up from our support pages: https://support.tangible-growth.com/how-to-use-individual-insights-in-a-team or contact us at support@tangible-growth.com.
