Hi, I’m Oana Calugar!
I founded Performance+ to help businesses and people to achieve clarity and focus to accomplish their goals using the Objective and Key Results framework.
I’ve analyzed and overhauled processes and customer-facing departments for startups and big companies. I’ve created results for technology companies and managed projects that spanned software development, mobile applications, data analytics and data security, marketing and customer service. From high-level strategy to customer interactions to nitty gritty product management, I’ve worked in almost every aspect of the business world. And I want to share that expertise with you.
Growing up in the countryside at my grandparents’ farm, problem-solving skills were a necessity and I consider this contributed to my growth: it’s how I learned to observe, analyze, adjust and assess. At that farm, on a hot summer day, it's where I decided what I want to be when I grow up: a business woman!
I graduated Business Administration and I started working in marketing and accounting early on, since I was a student. I then started my career in the world of Information Technology and I fell in love with tech . I learned how to build teams and departments from the ground up. I worked with startups and big companies and I founded my own product company in the field of customer data analytics.
Consulting was my next step, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with an array of companies and entrepreneurs in different industries. Together, we’ve built systems, established metrics, managed mobile apps launches, led virtual teams, established strategy and coached startup teams accelerator programs.
As I worked with teams who targeted aggressive growth, I wanted to provide a focus for the team. I’m a big believer that a team aligned and focused on common goals delivers a multiplier effect. The framework I chose to rally and focus teams around was Objectives and Key Results (OKRs). It’s not the only framework available, but it’s one I have found effective with agile teams. Since then, I was able to adapt the framework for startup teams and I’m an OKRs practitioner in my personal life also. Hey, I even set my OKRs as a screensaver on my phone!
