DAN MONTGOMERY - AGILE STRATEGIES
 
ACHIEVING BUISNESS AGILITY WITH OKRs
Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) is a rapidly emerging goal setting practice for building overall business agility, featuring fast feedback and high levels of team engagement. OKRs originated in Silicon Valley firms including Intel, Google, and LinkedIn, and have spread to other industries and non-tech companies including Patagonia, ING Bank, The Guardian, and Target. OKRs build on the agile mindset and culture without the focus on software development. OKR is an easy to learn, rapid feedback process that engages each team’s perspective and creativity. The big difference from traditional planning methods? OKRs are set, evaluated and reset frequently - typically quarterly. In a typical OKR environment, at least 60% of the goals are set bottom-up, rather than being cascaded from a more global objective. This provides a much more engaging environment for the teams setting the goals. OKRs are a great way to ensure that teams stay focused on what matters to the customer, and for other parts of the business to go agile without all the technical jargon.
