And Share Your Experience With Other Teams

If you’re totally new to OKRs you can start with OKR Pilot – perhaps just in one team.

  • Share this OKR guide amongst your team so you’ve had the same introduction.
  • Try creating one unifying Company OKR e.g. a good start-up OKR is:

Churn has reduced from X to Y
LTV : CAC Ratio is over 4
NPS is 80+

  • Is there a team system or process that could be improved to support your Company OKR?
  • Is there an OKR that would unite teams and could answer the question: ‘how could our product be improved to help customers?’ For example, what if your product was harder to learn than you would like and it’s stopping you from getting scale. The value you need to provide is:

Make learning our product really easy

As measured by:

80% of new sign-ups complete all 5 engagement tasks
50% of new users invite 5 colleagues to the app

  • Which teams would work together to deliver your OKR?
  • Brainstorm for Initiatives to achieve this goal and move ahead with the best ones. These are the activities that will deliver the outcomes you want.
  • Commit to weekly check-in and discussion.
  • Sign-up to ZOKRI – it’s free for the pilot and there’s lots of exclusive eduction in the platform itself.
