Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) is a goal setting framework that helps teams, individuals and organisations set and track measurable goals. The OKRs approach transforms aspiration into reality and is becoming one of the most prevalent strategic frameworks in today’s world. Some of the common scenarios that companies may face include:

  • 'business as usual' culture that can often result in new opportunities being missed
  • geographically spread teams could potentially result in employees lacking clarity on how their individual work contributes to the overall shared vision; or
  • companies that experience rapid growth / operate in a rapidly changing environment may find it challenging to scale up or adapt.

While the list is not exhaustive, adopting this framework into your organisation can bring about a much-needed transformational change leading to increased accountability and a focused approach to management strategy.
