You might think that OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) are just the updated version of MBOs (Drucker’s 1950’s Management by Objectives) or the Balanced Scorecard (Kaplan and Norton’s 1990’s version). Well, you’d be right! But they are more… they take advantage of the abundance of near-real-time data available about everything we do, which creates an agile execution environment that can change as quickly as your world changes.
Our approach links strategy with OKRs (some objectives are more important than others), along with near real-time data. We incorporate intrinsic motivators (purpose, mastery, progress, autonomy and socialization) along with applying game mechanics – if appropriate for your culture.
