OKR Software

Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) are one of a number of goal setting frameworks used by companies to guide and productivity, and optimize business performance.

The OKR framework has a number of attributes that makes it different to simpler goal methodologies that SMART. Those being:

  • Objectives With Meaningful Measures – The separation of the Objectives from the measures that will track the Objectives achievement. These measures are carefully chosen to be meaningful, which is why they are called Key Results.
  • Naturally Supportive – The ability to support the achievement one OKR with another. This is often referred to as alignment. It should always be possible to see which part of a company strategy the OKR you’re working on is supporting.
  • Sometimes Aspirational – The practice of setting aspirational outcomes that are likely to get missed can be seen as a little strange if you’re not familiar with the reasons why and the benefits of that approach.
  • Frequently Updated & Discussed – The reliance of continuous (usually weekly) check-ins and planning meetings that keep teams focused and accountable for results.

As we mentioned above, OKRs and therefore OKR software that helps you manages them are part of a wider strategic planning system. 

 

ZOKRI’s Competitors Are Not Other OKR Software Vendors 

OKRs have a job to do. It’s an important job as well. understanding the job they do and the role of OKRs in an company will help you adopt them correctly and select the best OKR software for your needs.

  1. Execute Your Strategy – Team OKRs are there to help a company execute it’s strategy. A strategy is not a revenue target, it a compelling and cohesive story that articulates where you are, the problem you need to solve that requires change and your hypothesis for how  you the get an edge / competitive advantage that results in you winning.
  2. Provide A Roadmap – Think of OKRs are a tool that teams can use to roadmap what needs to be achieved in order to execute the strategy and move the big lagging indicators being tracked in KPI scorecards.
  3. Focus Conversations – OKRs are not a ‘set and forget’ goal setting framework. They are a ‘set and focus’ goal framework. The aim is to make conversations about them continuous and habitual.
  4. Share Information & Accelerate Performance – OKRs have a lot of information gathered around them. The information you want to collect have have flow to the right people and followed up on includes: Progress, Confidence / Risk Levels, Issues, Opportunities, and Priorities. Having a this information improves goal outcomes.

Who are ZOKRI’s true competitors? Honestly, our biggest competitor is not having a real strategy and a formal strategic goals setting process. Our second biggest competitor is having strategy and goals managed in lots of documents and tools. Both of these from a business growth perspective are at best sub-optimal, and not especially rational.

Strategy and goal setting is proven to make a material difference to revenue growth, employee productivity, impact and retention. Why would you not become really good at both of these?

Because ZOKRI is more than a pure-play OKR software tool, it sits in a category you recognize ‘OKR software‘, but it’s not directly comparable.

By design and careful selection, ZOKRI has capabilities that you need that ensure OKR success, that competitor product do not have. This makes an OKR software comparison hard and easy – “We can do everything they can do, and we do all of this as well, which you’re going to love!” 

Our job is to delight you with those ‘magic’ features during your trial.

The Business Case For OKR Software

The variables at play are complicated. Let us unpack the variables of the OKR Software ROI equation: We’ve got the:

  • Strategy Value: The value of your strategy, or more specifically, the value of you succeeding to execute your strategy. ZOKRI increases the likelihood your strategy will be seen and understood, and actions will then be shaped by this awareness and the subsequent operationalization, which creates accountability.
  • Productivity Value: High performing teams have goal, roles and plan clarity, in addition to routines and rituals that keep them productive and on-track. How many Full-time Employees do you have? Multiply that by 1,700  – the average hours per year worked. Now what if you could add 20% of that as extra productivity to your output? By making what is done more strategic, value based, and rationale, that is what you could and should be doing.
  • Effort Value: When employees are involved in goal setting and related project / activity planning, they are more engaged, energized and resilient. They are more likely to be giving you their discretionary effort, and less likely to be ‘soft peddling’. Having goal progress made public also increases focus and effort – we are all more likely to do what is ‘inspected’ than ‘expected’.
  • Meeting Value: Everyone knows a lot of money is wasted on average meetings with a low Return On Time Invested (ROTI). When you have goal, roles and plan clarity and you have weekly meetings with a set ‘performance and planning’ agenda, you need fewer meetings in the middle. What if you could reduce the time spent in meetings by 30%? What is that worth?
