OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) are the modern, best-practice methodology for setting Objectives for employees, teams, and business units. OKRs improve alignment and engagement in the company, driving better performance and better results.
Through the OKR process executives, team leaders, and HR professionals are improving the company’s culture, making it more results driven and results oriented. Everyone in the company now has a clear vision of their role and how they contribute to the corporation’s primary objectives.
In his recent New York Times best-seller, “Measure What Matters”, John Doerr, venture capitalist, details the OKR methodology, its history, principles, and how he introduced OKRs to Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin back in 1999. Google continues to employ OKRs to this day, and Doerr continues to introduce OKRs to every company he invests in.
With this renewed focus and popularity of the methodology, high performing companies globally are embracing OKRs as the absolute “Must Do” to optimize the value of their most precious resource, their people.
