What is OKR?
OKRs close the gap between strategies
and daily execution.
OKR is originated in Intel in the 1970s. It became popular because it helped Google achieve more than 10 X growth when Google only had 40 employees at that time. Until today, Google and Intel still use OKRs to achieve company goals faster and effectively.
OKRs close the gap between strategies and daily execution. It helps employees to make a measurable contribution to achieving the company mission & vision.
As leaders of your organization,
did you face the below dilemma or challenges:
You know your team is very busy, but you could not see the expected results they provide to your business.
Are your people protecting their interests rather than working towards your team / organizational goal?
Your employees lack the motivation to work, and it is hard to engage them.
You want to have a business breakthrough or innovation but don’t know where to start.
If the above challenges sound familiar to you,
OKRs can help you to overcome them.
OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) help organizations stay aligned by connecting company, team, and personal objectives to measurable results.
OKRs is a critical thinking framework and ongoing discipline that seeks to ensure employees work together, focusing their efforts to make measurable contributions that drive the company forward.
A statement of a broad goal, usually qualitative in nature.
A statement that measures achievement of a given objective.

People worked hard on work output but did not focus on work outcomes; they were not able to connect their work to the bigger picture of the organization. With this in mind, she explored how to enhance the alignment and execution within companies and discovered OKRs in 2017. Later her mentor Ben Lamorte, the co-author of Objectives and Key Results: Driving Focus, Alignment, and Engagement with OKRs, coached her for OKRs implementation in companies in Asia.
