OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) are just OK if used for topics that are known: goal setting, success metrics, status updates. OKRs become great when used for managing the unknown: strategy tied to execution, alignment around value, and feedback on a trajectory.
Applied correctly, OKRs can help you flesh out the biggest problem areas in your organization so you can start to monitor and measure progress. Applied incorrectly, OKRs will bring no additional value to your organization than your old goal-setting methods.
In this session, we will share how we have used a simple 3-question template to help some of the largest companies in the world establish great OKRs using Unknown Management, or highlighting and bringing to focus the root causes for why you aren't meeting your goals. Some examples of real customer's Unknowns are: Why do we keep working on things that do not fulfill our strategies? Why do we have so many delays in getting the right things done? How do we know we are building the right stuff? Why do we miss targets?
• Identify the key areas of focus where OKRs can provide the most value
• Understand how the unknowns in your organization impact success (and why OKRs can help)
• Learn to use a 3-question template to define great OKRs
