The OKR (Objectives and Key Results) goal-setting framework is a method used by organizations to set and track progress towards specific, measurable goals. It involves setting clear, measurable objectives that are aligned with the overall mission of the organization, and then tracking key results that measure progress towards those objectives. OKRs are used by many successful companies to drive growth and continuous improvement.
This OKR Template is for leaders and teams from organizations who are looking to implement the OKR goal-setting framework. It provides a clear, step-by-step approach to implementing OKRs, including specific actions and measures to track progress.
If your organization is looking to set and track progress towards specific goals, the OKR goal-setting framework can be an effective tool. This OKR Template provides a comprehensive strategy for implementing OKRs in your organization, with a focus on preparing to implement OKRs, implementing OKRs in all teams, communicating the OKR implementation process, and tracking the success of the OKR implementation. By following this template, your organization can effectively implement the OKR goal-setting framework and track progress towards its goals.
Focus areas are broad categories used to group problems or challenging areas within your organization. Creating focus areas helps guide your organization on what areas are a priority to work towards.

A strategic objective usually has to be specific and measurable to cause enough impact and effectively explain what you want to achieve.

A KPI is a key performance indicator that is measurable and evaluates the success rate of an organization in relation to the task at hand. KPIs can be very industry-specific or broad and applicable across multiple industries.
An example of a KPI for the objective ‘Roll out OKR framework to all teams’ in the OKR Template is: Number of teams that have completed their first OKR cycle.
Projects are ways in which the objective can be achieved, but more so, closely tie in with ways in which organizations can make sure they are working towards their KPIs.
An examples of a project within the OKR Template is: Conduct regular check-ins with teams to review progress on OKRs.
