Creating Objectives

Understanding OKRs

OKRs include objectives and key results. Objectives outline what you wish to achieve. They are action-oriented, concrete and inspirational. Key results show how you will reach the objective and monitor your progress. They are time-bound, specific and measurable.

"OKRs have helped lead us to 10x growth, many times over. They’ve helped make our crazily bold mission of 'organising the world’s information' perhaps even achievable. They’ve kept me and the rest of the company on time and on track when it mattered the most." – Larry Page, co-founder of Google.

For a full explanation with an example, see our blog article on Google’s OKR system and how it can work for your teams.
