Objectives and Key Results (OKR)

- The objective should be meaningful, plain, actionable, and time conscious.
- Key Results (KRs) specify how you attain your objective.
- Productive KRs are distinct and timely, realistic, and measurable, and verifiable.
- Unlike Objective, Key Results are continuously measured as the work progressed.
- Note that every KR and objective has a date and measurable value.
- Start with writing your objective with the end date. From now on, you own that objective, and you are committing to it.
- Write down the first key result to measure your success in achieving the objective.
- Set at least two more key results. Be harsh yet realistic with yourself.
Mistakes with OKRs
- Poorly rated objective. Also known as “Who Cares” OKR.
- Inability to differentiate between aspirational and committed OKRs. Aspirational OKRs are impossible to attain but set a template for business growth.
- your Aspirational OKR doesn’t meet the needs of your customers, then it’s timid.
