Click on any of the above links and you’ll see OKR examples for Corporate and Team OKRs. Notice how they are constructed with a statement that defines the Objective, and between 1 and 4 Key Results that usually contain the Goal Metric. Together they define what success looks like and whether an Objective has been achieved or not.
Key Results should ideally be measurable & and have a numerical target that’s hard to achieve and will stretch you.
The metrics Key Results contain should be quality not vanity metrics, and have a stretch component to them and low-balling target metrics is not to be allowed. This is why achieving between 70% and 100% of a Goal Metric can be seen as a success. But this depends on the OKR and needs to be looked at on an individual OKR basis. Sometime OKRs you may create as ‘Moon Shots’ and getting anywhere near is a victory. Some are solid and achievable goals where 100% achievement is possible and often necessary.
Key Results ideally are NOT Projects, Tasks, Epics or any other activity. These are Initiatives that have been selected in order to achieve Key Result progress. To help you keep this divide and succeed with OKRs, ZOKRI is OKR Software that fully integrates with software the teams use for their Projects and Tasks. There is no need to enter these twice and progress measurement is automated.
