Tability Buyer's Guide

Hello! This guide will answer common questions about Tability to help you understand how our platform can help.

Why we made Tability

2 recent trends have changed the way high-performing teams are built:
  • Orgs are breaking down large groups into many small teams that can move rapidly (see Amazon's Two-Pizza Teams).
  • Async work is becoming the primary way to operate as teams are now remote or distributed. Even the companies returning to the office are hybrid in some form.
These 2 things put together have created a new world where alignment and focus matter more than ever. That is why we're seeing goal-setting frameworks like OKRs taking over: organisations are looking for a simple way to coordinate efforts at scale, and it's much easier to do so by talking about goals rather than reviewing the details of each project.
TL;DR: the future of work is goals-driven.
So, what's the issue?
Well. Teams have great tools for specs, design, code, projects, etc. But they're missing a place for goals.
Tability is the missing piece between the vision and the projects
As a result, you end up in situations where teams want to put outcomes at the center of collaboration, yet they don't have the means to do it – this is the problem that Tability solves.
Domain-specific platforms like Figma, Github, or Jira have allowed people to increase productivity and iterate quickly on outputs. Tability will help you do the same for strategy and outcomes to deliver outstanding results faster.

Who is Tability for?

While you can use Tability for yourself, we designed the platform with teams in mind. More specifically, Tability is designed to help distributed organisations increase accountability while drastically reducing the cost of reporting.

Tability vs. other platforms

When choosing the right tool for goal tracking and OKR management, it's essential to consider how each option stacks up against the alternatives. In this section, we'll compare Tability with common tools like spreadsheets, docs, project management tools, and traditional OKR tools to help you understand why Tability could be the best choice for your needs.

Tability vs. spreadsheets (ex: Google Sheets, Airtable)

  • Ease of use: Unlike the often cumbersome and complex spreadsheets, Tability offers an intuitive interface, making goal tracking and OKR management accessible to everyone in your team.
  • Accurate status updates: Spreadsheets can quickly become outdated. Tability, on the other hand, provides real-time updates and insights, ensuring everyone is always aligned with the latest objectives.
  • Collaboration: Tability fosters seamless team collaboration. While spreadsheets can be challenging for multiple users to update simultaneously, Tability's collaborative features ensure that everyone stays on the same page.

Tability vs. docs (ex: Google Docs, Confluence, Notion)

  • Structured format: Tability offers a dedicated and structured format for managing goals, which general-purpose document tools lack. This structure ensures clarity and focus on objectives and key results.
  • Integration: Tability integrates effortlessly with other business tools, creating a connected and efficient workflow, unlike isolated document-based systems.
  • Visualisations: Tability will automatically generate progress charts and dashboards, allowing you to understand progress at a glance.

Tability vs. project management tools (ex: Jira, ClickUp, Asana)

  • Focus on goals: While project management tools offer a broad suite of features, Tability is tailored explicitly for goal management, ensuring a more focused and effective approach.
  • Simplicity and clarity: Project management tools can be overwhelming with features. Tability provides a simpler, more direct way of tracking OKRs, making it easier for teams to adopt and use effectively.
  • Accountability workflows: Unlike project management tools, Tability has built-in tools to nudge teams about weekly check-ins and ensure that everyone keeps in mind what matters the most.

Tability vs. Employee Performance Management Tools (15Five, Lattice)

  • Strategic alignment with goals: Tability is specifically designed for goal management. In contrast, employee performance management tools often focus more on evaluating past performance rather than aligning future objectives.
  • Real-time goal tracking: Unlike many performance management tools that assess employee performance periodically (e.g., quarterly or annually), Tability allows for continuous tracking and updating of objectives. This approach keeps teams agile and responsive to changes.
  • Collaboration and engagement: Tability encourages active collaboration and engagement among team members in setting and achieving goals. This contrasts with the more top-down approach of traditional performance management tools, where goals are often set and reviewed by managers alone.

Tability vs. traditional OKR tools (Quantive, Perdoo, Profit)

  • Ease of use: With a user-friendly interface, Tability makes setting up, tracking, and achieving OKRs a smoother experience compared to some traditional tools.
  • Mapping strategic initiatives: Tability makes it easy to connect goals to strategic projects, allowing you to create a rapid feedback loop between outcomes and outputs.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Tability offers competitive pricing, making it an affordable option without compromising on quality and functionality.
