Good, well constructed OKRs increase performance. To help you we’ve created some OKR examples for you to use. But before you jump straight in, take a minute to read these basic OKR writing tips. They will help you write better OKRs and spot a bad one.
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 contain the Goal Metric. Together they define what success looks like and whether an Objective has been achieved or not.
OKRs are not tasks, are meant to contain 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.
