Get started with Objectives & Key Results with our OKR Template along with a short guide on how to use the template.OKR Template help businesses to focus effort on the same important issues throughout the organisation. OKRs provide a framework for leadership to discuss how the work of an individual employee is connected to the overall business strategy. Because they are visible to everyone - top-down, bottom-up, and cross-functionally - OKRs ensure everyone is working toward the same outcomes.
OKRs consist of two elements: the Objective, and its associated Key Results:
- Objective (O)
Objectives represent what the business / team / individual want to accomplish. They are qualitative goals designed to propel the organisation in the desired direction. They should be significant to the company and personally meaningful to the individual. They should also be aspirational and ambitious, feeling a bit uncomfortable. In this respect they're a stretch; they aren't easily accomplished and will require incremental effort and innovation to achieve. Objectives should be ambitious and a bit aggressive, but you shouldn’t be setting goals that are so big that they’re impossible. They should challenge employees to push further, but not demotivate them by making them feel that they're un-attainable.
- Key Results (KRs)
Key Results are how the business / team / individual will accomplish the Objective; they clearly make the objective achievable. They lead to Objective grading, i.e. only by the attainment of the Key Results will the overall Objective be delivered. Key Results are should be specific and measurable, avoiding vague language such as 'increase sales'.
