OKRs play a crucial role in aligning everyone within an organization toward a common goal. This is achieved through a process called “Localization”, which involves breaking down the OKRs and disseminating them throughout the organization. To facilitate this process, it is recommended to conduct OKR setting workshops led by experienced OKR Coaches who are not only experts in the OKR framework but also change leaders within the company. These coaches can provide valuable guidance and support in articulating effective OKRs that drive business performance and enhance strategy execution.
