What's behind the success of aligning their people and teams to work as one towards set goals?
OKR is a simple process of setting company, department, team and personal goals and connecting each goal with 3-5 measurable results. As you achieve those results, the whole objective gets marked done. It's all about focus, as on any level you can have just 3-4 objectives, not more. There's a bunch of good examples of OKRs at okrexamples.co.
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?
