5 Steps how Project Managers can leverage OKRs

How Objectives and Key Results allow you to turn your Strategy into Action

Objectives and Key Results

OKRs, or Objectives and Key Results, are a framework for defining and tracking objectives and their outcomes. The development of OKRs is generally attributed to Andy Grove, the "Father of OKRs", who introduced the approach at Intel during his tenure and documented it in his book "High Output Management". The concept was later popularized by John Doerr, who has been a major proponent of the OKR system.

The primary goal of OKRs is to create alignment and engagement around measurable goals. Essentially, OKRs are a way to ensure that the company focuses efforts on the same important issues throughout the organization.
