Introduction

OKRs work brilliantly. When implemented correctly, OKRs establish broad alignment and accountability throughout an organization and help teams see how their work contributes to the company’s objectives. Yet, some businesses are reluctant to implement OKRs because they fear a cumbersome, bureaucratic process and opt to stay with inefficient goal-setting practices. 

In order for a company to be successful with OKRs, you want to make sure that OKRs are implemented in a strategic way. The most successful groups take time to design how they will use OKRs once they have them, prepare and follow a detailed implementation plan, building the implementation team, providing the right training, following change management best practices, and having a strategy for capturing and tracking OKRs. Using the right approach to implementing OKRs involves ensuring that the process is seen as valuable—from executives all the way down to individual contributors. 

This eBook will provide guidelines on how to implement OKRs successfully in your organization.
