How OKRs can
transform your organization

OKR stands for Objectives and Key Results, and is a goal-setting methodology that dates back to the early days of Intel and Google. OKRs help organizations align their business goals and ensure everyone is working towards those same objectives. Watch this video to find out more!

Running a company
is like a game of ‘telephone'

Imagine starting with a crystal-clear idea, a well-crafted plan, and a defined goal in mind. It all sounds promising, right? But here’s the catch: as we move down the line to teams and individual contributors, everyone adds their own interpretations and perceptions. It’s like playing a game of telephone, where the original message gets distorted along the way.

OKRs improve
transparency, alignment and accountability

OKRs can help with this communication hurdle. They provide a structured framework to align goals, clarify expectations, and empower employees to achieve organizational goals. With OKRs, organizations can overcome execution barriers, find purpose, and make a meaningful impact that truly matters. Not only will everyone in your organization understand the overarching goals, but they will know exactly how they play a role in achieving them.

OKRs help you
measure what matters

The OKR method emphasizes the importance of measuring what matters. Using the mountain climbing analogy, the objective represents the summit, while the key results act as the checkpoints that measure your progress towards the summit.The OKR method ensures that the key results are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. By continuously tracking your key results through the OKR process, you can quickly identify areas where you need to make improvements to stay on track and reach your goals. Without measuring what matters using the OKR method, you risk losing sight of your objective and not making the necessary adjustments to get there. The beauty of the OKR framework is that it’s flexible and can adapt to the ever-changing landscape of business.

You can’t
just set OKRs
and call it a day

One of the most common situations we see in organizations that attempt to run an OKR program, is that they set OKRs and then forget them. OKRs aren’t a magic bullet. There are processes and rituals that should be followed to make sure OKRs become a consistent part of your organization’s DNA. Progress needs to be kept up to date and any roadblocks need to be identified and addressed. These processes and rituals are just some of the best practices that we teach in our OKR program implementations.
