    Best practices for managing your Strategic Partnership 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

    The #1 role of OKRs is to help you and your team focus on what really matters. Business-as-usual activities will still be happening, but you do not need to track your entire roadmap in the 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

    Don't fall into the set-and-forget trap. It is important to adopt a weekly check-in process to get the full value of your OKRs and make your strategy agile – otherwise this is nothing more than a reporting exercise.

    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 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 Strategic Partnership 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.
