* Why don't we offer "OKR with goal and task management"? Teams usually already have task management tools that exactly meet their needs - such as Trello, Jira or Asana. In our experience, teams have no interest in maintaining their goals and tasks in multiple systems. As a platform for employee, team and company development, we therefore offer interfaces to export the measures from Echometer into existing tools.
