Often the secret of success, is the follow through, the not constantly changing your objectives and the overcoming of obstacles. The OKR method is what is very much helping businesses in the above. OKR stands for Objectives and Key Results and is a method used to identify clearly the WHAT and the HOW.

What – objectives: what do we want to achieve?
How – key results: how could we measure progress?

This gives employees, teams, departments, business areas and the business overall the clarity on what’s in the focus and what is not in the focus for a given period.

Focus on a few things and do them well.

This is what OKR does while fostering a transparent communication on objectives and progress.

So next time you want to think about objectives, ask yourself:

  • How can I be clear on the what and on the how?
  • How can I communicate and break down objectives?
  • How does changing objectives impact my team?
