A Framework and Examples
Employees work in a variety of ways – around products, functions, and journeys – and we need to be aligned within and across teams to achieve our priorities as an organization. We’ve seen the speed of change in the media and technology landscape accelerate, and the ability to more quickly iterate and align on strategic priorities is key to sustaining our leadership.
OKRs provide a common vocabulary and quarterly process for teams to articulate and align what they want to achieve, focus efforts on measurable outcomes, and iteratively learn with data over time. OKRs are a way of defining and achieving our best possible outcomes as teams and as an organization; they are not a way to measure individual performance. OKR software provides a platform to stay on track.
"I literally dream about OKRs! Everything is in WorkBoard, and we’re so much more productive and efficient as a result."
“The OKR process and platform are the biggest levers you have in creating organizational clarity. That’s why we use WorkBoard.”
"Anchoring monthly business reviews on OKRs grounds the discussion in facts, not fluff."
