How flexible is the OKR framework?
OKR is essentially a cumulation of goal management best practices that were collected over the past few decades and compiled into a framework. These OKR best practices act as guidelines to ensure your organization is set up for success. Having said that, every organization is different. And the beauty of OKR is that it provides enough flexibility, enabling you to contextualize and adapt the framework to best fit your organization's needs. The OKR framework is flexible. But you might be wondering: how flexible? We discuss the 5 key OKR best practices with (Peter Kappus), an OKR expert, and organizational coach. These guidelines are typically interpreted quite strictly, resulting in many organizations failing with OKR or just abandoning the framework altogether. But we'll uncover how you can use the given rules and adapt them to best suit you. Here are some of the things we discuss: (Outcomes vs. outputs): When is it alright to have an output-focused Key Result? (Annual and quarterly cadences): When is it ok for organizations not to use the default cadence? Can teams change OKRs mid-quarter? OKR progress: Can OKR progress only be driven by Key Results? (Stretch OKRs): When should organizations work with stretch OKRs? Private OKRs: When can you have private/hidden OKRs? Tune in to learn more! - Want to track your OKRs (and KPIs)?

What it takes to be successful with OKR

What it takes to be successful with OKR
The OKR framework is designed to set organizations up for success. Yet many organizations that adopt OKR see little to no benefit of working with the framework. Why is that? Well, a lot of these organizations use what Felipe Castro calls the "Tinkerbell approach to OKR" — they simply continue working the same way they did before and just sprinkle some "OKR" pixie dust over it. That might work if you're lucky, but in most cases it won't. OKR calls for a fundamental shift in how you approach work and has a few key areas that need attention in order for it to be a huge success. We spoke to OKR trainer and consultant, (Felipe Castro), on what it takes to be successful with OKR. During this episode we'll discuss the 3 things you need to be successful with OKR: Commitment to OKR from senior leadership How to use OKR in practice Unlearn old models Tune in to get a deep dive on what you need to do to make your OKR program a massive success.

Covey (Unlearn) by Barry O'Reilly (Scrum: Twice the work in half the time) by Jeff Sutherland Resources that can help further boost the success of your OKR program (How to write great OKRs) (Outcomes vs. outputs) - Ready to track your OKRs the right way?
