15 OKR examples for Partnership Team

What are Partnership Team OKRs?

The Objective and Key Results (OKR) framework is a simple goal-setting methodology that was introduced at Intel by Andy Grove in the 70s. It became popular after John Doerr introduced it to Google in the 90s, and it's now used by teams of all sizes to set and track ambitious goals at scale.

Formulating strong OKRs can be a complex endeavor, particularly for first-timers. Prioritizing outcomes over projects is crucial when developing your plans.

To aid you in setting your goals, we have compiled a collection of OKR examples customized for Partnership Team. Take a look at the templates below for inspiration and guidance.

If you want to learn more about the framework, you can read our OKR guide online.

    Best practices for managing your Partnership Team 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.

    Tability Insights DashboardTability's audit dashboard will highlight opportunities to improve OKRs

    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.

    Tability Insights DashboardTability's check-ins will save you hours and increase transparency

    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 below). 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.

    Building your own Partnership Team OKRs with AI

    While we have some examples below, it's likely that you'll have specific scenarios that aren't covered here. There are 2 options available to you.

    Best way to track your Partnership Team OKRs

    The rules of OKRs are simple. Quarterly OKRs should be tracked weekly, and yearly OKRs should be tracked monthly. 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.
