    Best practices for managing your Partnership Development Manager OKRs

    Generally speaking, your objectives should be ambitious yet achievable, and your key results should be measurable and time-bound (using the SMART framework can be helpful). It is also recommended to list strategic initiatives under your key results, as it'll help you avoid the common mistake of listing projects in your KRs.

    Here are a couple of best practices extracted from our OKR implementation guide 👇

    Tip #1: Limit the number of key results

    Focus can only be achieve by limiting the number of competing priorities. It is crucial that you take the time to identify where you need to move the needle, and avoid adding business-as-usual activities to your OKRs.

    We recommend having 3-4 objectives, and 3-4 key results per objective. A platform like Tability can run audits on your data to help you identify the plans that have too many goals.

    Tip #2: Commit to the weekly check-ins

    Having good goals is only half the effort. You'll get significant more value from your OKRs if you commit to a weekly check-in process.

    Being able to see trends for your key results will also keep yourself honest.

    Tip #3: No more than 2 yellow statuses in a row

    Yes, this is another tip for goal-tracking instead of goal-setting (but you'll get plenty of OKR examples above). But, once you have your goals defined, it will be your ability to keep the right sense of urgency that will make the difference.

    As a rule of thumb, it's best to avoid having more than 2 yellow/at risk statuses in a row.

    Make a call on the 3rd update. You should be either back on track, or off track. This sounds harsh but it's the best way to signal risks early enough to fix things.

    Best way to track your Partnership Development Manager OKRs

    OKRs without regular progress updates are just KPIs. You'll need to update progress on your OKRs every week to get the full benefits from the framework. Reviewing progress periodically has several advantages:

    • It brings the goals back to the top of the mind
    • It will highlight poorly set OKRs
    • It will surface execution risks
    • It improves transparency and accountability

    Spreadsheets are enough to get started. Then, once you need to scale you can use a proper OKR platform to make things easier.
