Do you know what's the one thing in common in Google, Linkedin, Intel, Zynga, Oracle, Twitter and Sears?

What's behind the success of aligning their people and teams to work as one towards set goals?

It's the magical acronym OKR – Objectives and Key Results. All of them use it and love it. Today we're introducing OKR support also in Weekdone team collaboration software.

OKR is a simple process of setting company, team and personal goals and connecting each goal with 3-4 measurable results. As you achieve those results, the whole objective gets marked done.

Implemented initially in 1970's by the President of Intel Andy Grove it later spread across many tech companies. Nowadays it's used by teams and whole companies from SME's to Fortune 500.

If there's one management practice that's spreading like wildfire and loved by all, it's Objectives and Key Results. It's quick and easy. It makes your company more successful. Why not try it out with your team?

The infographic below tells you the whole story of OKR's, their history, best practices and what leaders using them think of them.
