OKRs are a cultural change and require commitment, patience, and time to develop new habits.

There’s nothing wrong with setting goals around your KPIs, but OKRs need a different way of thinking. Instead of focusing on an individual metric and trying to improve it, the focus shifts to broader outcomes, solving problems, and truly pushing the company forward. KPIs are a measurable result, but they’re only a piece of a puzzle.
