What if there’s an OKR we can’t afford to miss?

critical okr

A crucial aspect of the OKR framework is distinguishing between Committed OKRs and Aspirational OKRs. While both types serve a purpose, it is important not to confuse them. Committed OKRs are the goals that your company and teams are fully committed to achieving within a specific timeframe. These goals are based on a realistic assessment of what can be accomplished and align with the overall business strategy. On the other hand, Aspirational OKRs are more like stretch goals that push the boundaries and inspire innovation. They may not be fully attainable, but they encourage teams to think big and strive for breakthrough achievements.

To ensure effective strategy execution, it is crucial to have a mix of both Committed and Aspirational OKRs. Committed OKRs provide a clear focus and drive accountability, while Aspirational OKRs foster creativity and encourage teams to reach for the stars. By understanding the distinction between the two, you can set appropriate expectations and allocate resources accordingly.

For more insights on the difference between Aspirational and Committed OKRs, I recommend reading our article on aspirational vs. committed OKRs. It delves deeper into this topic and provides practical examples to help you grasp the concept better. Remember, finding the right balance between the two types of OKRs is key to achieving business goals and driving successful strategy execution.
