OKRs are most effective when implemented at a team level as they promote collaboration and alignment within the organization. Teams are the driving force behind achieving business goals, and utilizing the OKR framework can help bring them together towards a common objective. However, it is worth mentioning that personal OKRs can also be utilized for individuals working independently or for personal development purposes. In such cases, they may not necessarily need to be aligned with the overall corporate strategy. By implementing OKRs, organizations can ensure that teams are aligned, collaborative, and focused on achieving their objectives.
