The benefits of choosing OKR software as a startup come from the OKR Planning, the desire to be metric driven, and the focus the OKR framework can bring. Focus matters as when you’re an early-stage company you have the need to achieve lots and the resources to achieve less than you’d like. How you use the time and people you have is critical to your survival.

So what are your options when looking for OKR Software?

  1. Spreadsheets : If you’re really early stage with just founders and perhaps your first few recruits a spreadsheet can work. But note what we have learned about spreadsheets as an OKR management tool.
  2. JIRA : Engineering and Product teams often use JIRA to plan and track software development. We talk to start-ups that have also used JIRA to set OKRS in the early stages as well before moving on to specialist OKR software like ZOKRI.
  3. OKR Software : There is a good selection of OKR software vendors out there. You can read our OKR software comparison here.

Budgets

When money is tight it’s hard to ignore the needs to only spend money on what is absolutely necessary. Whether paid for OKR software is necessary when you’re 5 people finding your way depends on the value you assign to OKRs and the benefits they bring, and the weight you put on the disadvantages generic tools like spreadsheets possess.

Good OKRs Count More

We talk to lots of companies that have ended up with poor OKRs being set. Or OKRs being set and forgotten. It’s more important to set good OKRs than the OKR tool you choose to manage them. Even the best OKR software won’t help you if your OKRs are poorly planned.

So put most of your early energy to knowing what OKRs are and creating good OKRs for you and your startup.

And let us be clear on this:

"Great OKRs on post-its are better than terrible OKRs in any OKR software".
