OKR (Objectives and Key Results) is a system of objectives. It’s a simple tool for creating alignment and commitment around measurable goals. The big difference from traditional planning methods? OKRs are frequently defined, tracked and reassessed – typically quarterly. OKR is a quick and easy process that engages the perspective and creativity of each team. Creating alignment in the organization is one of the main benefits of OKR. The aim is to make sure that everyone is going in the same direction, with clear priorities, at a constant pace. The original concept of OKR came from Intel and spread to other companies in Silicon Valley.
