OKRs, which stands for Objectives and Key Results, are typically set and reviewed on a quarterly basis. This allows companies to regularly assess their progress and make necessary adjustments to their strategy execution. During the “Reset” phase, which occurs every three months, companies have the opportunity to evaluate their OKRs and determine if any changes or refinements are needed. This iterative approach ensures that goals and objectives remain aligned with the evolving needs of the business. By regularly reviewing and resetting OKRs, companies can effectively track their business performance and drive continuous improvement.
