A simple guide to make OKRs easier to adopt.
Made with ❤️ by Tability.
Why this guide?
We get to speak with dozens of teams every month about Objectives and Key Results (OKRs). Some have everything under control, but many still have open questions about the framework:
- How is that different from what we're doing today?
- Where do we start?
- Can I see an example?
This guide is here to answer these questions in a simple and practical manner. We're not claiming to be gurus, and some of the advice might not work for your team. But, we hope that it will give you some inspiration and provoke some interesting debates.
Who is this guide for?
We've tailored this guide for teams that are new to OKRs. It also assumes that you're more like a startup than a company with thousands of employees (most tips would still be applicable).
