Measure what matters – successful with OKRs

What have successful companies like Spotify, Google und Twitter in common? They work with OKRs. You don’t know what to do with this term right now? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you right now what OKRs are not – another PERFORMANCE TOOL.

What exactly are OKRs?

OKRs or Objectives and Key Results is a method that enables all teams to work together on common and, above all, measurable goals. Due to transparency, OKRs are a perfect communication tool that empowers your teams to achieve ambitious goals, which in turn contribute to higher-level company goals. As a result, the focus is kept on the really important matters.

“If you focus on everything, you focus on nothing” – Andy Grove

In a nutshell – what do you achieve by implementing the OKR method? 

  • Greatest possible transparency across departmental boundaries
  • Goals agreed with all teams that are aligned with the overall goals and vision of your company
  • Improved communication, both top-down and bottom-up
  • Encouraging visionary thinking throughout the organization
  • Leveraging the strengths of employees
  • Optimal allocation of resources by focusing on key issues

What are the advantages of OKRs compared to other goal setting systems?

  • By setting goals on a quarterly basis, you always have room to react to unforeseen events without losing sight of the overall goal.
  • Working together creates alignment and identification with the goals.
  • The concretization of OKRs is possible down to the employee level.
  • The OKR process promotes transparency and exchange within the company.
  • A short-term observation period requires a more regular exchange about progress and promotes agility in the company.
