The frequency at which you update your Key Results (KRs) depends on the availability of data. In most cases, a weekly update is recommended as it allows for timely adjustments and ensures that you stay on track toward your objectives. However, if the data you need to update your KRs is not available on a weekly basis, it is important to align your update cadence with the frequency of your data stream. It is generally not advisable to update KRs less frequently than monthly, as this may result in delayed insights and hinder your strategy execution. By setting a consistent update cadence, you can effectively measure and manage your business performance in alignment with your OKRs.
