How to track your OKRs?

It's important to establish a cadence of check-ins for your Designers OKRs.

Your quarterly OKRs should be tracked weekly in order to get all the benefits of the OKRs framework.

We recommend using a spreadsheet for your first OKRs cycle. You'll need to get familiar with the scoring and tracking first. Then, you can scale your OKRs process by using a proper OKRs-tracking tool for it.
