OKRs are the most common goal-setting framework I’ve used in my 10+ year career working for high growth tech companies.
OKRs stand for Objectives and Key Results and it’s a way of aligning your personal work to the overall company objectives.
OKRs work by setting Company Objectives, which then cascade down to Department objectives (.e.g marketing, engineering, etc) then down to Team and Personal objectives.
Your personal OKRs will support your team’s OKRs, which then support the department OKRs, and on up to the full company.
OKRs were popularized by Andrew Grove, the former CEO of Intel, in the 1970s. They eventually made their way to Google when Kleiner Perkins, a premier Venture Capital firm, invested in Google in 1999. Afterwards, John Doerr, a former intel manager, became an advisor to Google and introduced the framework.
Since then, OKRs have cascaded across and even outside the entire tech industry as a way of getting the entire company aligned to a set of goals.
But if you’re here then you know about the history of OKRs and you just want some templates.
So I’ll stop jabbering and get on with it.
