Welcome to this course on Objectives and Key Results, also known as OKRs. OKRs have become very popular for improving company performance.

OKRs improve your company’s performance by increasing:

  • Focus
  • Transparency
  • Trust
  • Cooperation
  • Employee engagement
  • Accountability
  • Alignment
  • Agility
  • Innovation

Objectives and Key Results, also known as OKRs, have become very popular for improving company performance. They have powered success at companies like Intuit, Google, and Intel. OKRs can be used by the smallest to the largest companies. OKRs improve your company’s performance by increasing focus, employee engagement, alignment, agility, and innovation.

The structure of OKRs is very simple. An OKR is comprised of:

  • An objective: an outcome you want to achieve
  • Key results: the criteria to measure the achievement of an objective

This simplicity and clarity attract many people to OKRs. It’s what also allows rapid iteration and ease of communication. OKRs focus on frequent iteration and innovation. This promotes setting OKRs across the organization and cross-team coordination.

In this course, I’ll walk you through how to build good OKRs and implement an effective OKR process in your company.

Note: This course is also available in Video-based format.

Basic intro to the subject; ties into differect topics like dashboards, strategy assessment, performance indicators, creation of multidisciplinacy performance teams. Bit light on the practical examples, but that's for the reader to apply the ideas and principles of the course.
