3) The C of course is Getting your Key Results Right

Most often than not, teams ricochet to tasks more than outcomes, while OKRs drive just the opposite mind shift! It emphasizes on the outcomes and considers tasks to be a part of the journey, to achieving those outcomes.

Your Key Results should tell you “ How Will You Measure Success?”

Choose Key Results, which show you making QUANTIFIED progress from X to Y and not just being in steady state.

With the help of our OKR Builder, you can choose what do you want to measure and how would you define progress? Meaning moving from X State to Y state because progress always means rowing together, in the right direction.
