The success of OKRs in business is heavily dependent on establishing a strong operating rhythm. This means consistently focusing on your OKRs in various meetings, reviews, and check-ins. The frequency with which you revisit and assess your OKRs directly correlates with your ability to achieve them. By regularly checking in and ensuring that you are still on track to achieve your objectives and key results, you significantly increase your chances of success. At Wave Nine, our OKR Coaches can provide valuable guidance and support in building this operating rhythm within your organization.
