Goals & OKRs

Set your goals

Koan's simple interface helps teams set clear, measurable goals. Teams use the OKR tool to track progress, surface concerns, and celebrate wins.

Focus on what's most important

Never lose sight of strategic objectives and easily communicate what's working and what's not.

Deliver outcomes, not tasks

Align teams to strategic outcomes with measurable key results, ensuring that everyone is working purposefully.

Collaborative goals at every level

Your most important goals are tackled by teams, not individuals. Work together to track OKR progress.

“Koan delivers a simple and easy to start with platform that other tools make too complex for DIY.”

Choosing the Right OKR Tool in 2020

An ideal OKR tool will build and reinforce great practices while fitting in seamlessly with the way your team already works. And a successful evaluation should always begin with the results you’re out to achieve.

3 Ways Koan Helps Teams Collaborate

The workplace is increasingly complex. We have more distributed teams than ever. We have more global teams than ever. Collaborating effectively is a necessity and a difficult art to master.

OKRs: Software vs Spreadsheets

Many organizations use spreadsheets to track goals, which can be a great, free tool for getting started. But when it comes to getting people engaged in your goals, that’s where OKRs can get lost in the shuffle.
