It would be great to always know what’s expected from you. Work would also feel better if I know how it impacts my workplace’s overall goals. And while there is no “silver bullet” for that, Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) can help you with your work a lot.

What is OKRs?

OKRs is a simple process for setting goals and getting more focused work done faster.

With OKRs you’ll:

  • have actionable and clear goals;
  • have a roadmap for getting to your goals on a fastest possible route.

Clear goals = less stress = more free time

Why should I use OKRs?

Because you’ll get your work done quicker AND you can focus on important task AND you’ll understand what the management wants with ease.

OKRs are designed so that everybody in the team would have a clear understanding of the big picture and knows what are the indicators of success.

My Objectives (goals) should be:

  • ambitious and inspiring;
  • qualitative;
  • time-bound;
  • actionable.

Objectives must be qualitative and describe the desired outcome. This will give you a clear task to do and helps you stay on track.

A good example objective could be:

My Key Results should be:

  • measurable and quantifiable;
  • make the objective achievable;
  • lead to objective grading;
  • aspiring but not impossible.

Key Results (KRs) measure how far from reaching your objective you are. It basically shows what you’ve been doing at work. This helps you show your value and abilities without spending too much time on reporting.

For our objective, the Key Results could be:
