Ready for the next entry of my leadership journey series? Today, we’re delving into a crucial aspect: Creating OKRs and KPIs—keeping things clean and concise.
🔗 Staying on Track: OKRs That Fit the Big Picture
Keeping things simple is an art form. We do it by aligning our goals with what the company and department are aiming for, and we adapt it every quarter. Each team’s goals fit into the bigger picture, creating teamwork that makes sense. It’s not about chaos; it’s about a clean and clear path that everyone understands, no unnecessary details to drown in.
🚀 Crafting Our Route: Keeping It Simple with OKRs
Success is about setting clear goals without drowning in details. Every quarter, we take time to really understand what we want to achieve. No rocket science here—just smart, strategic goals that guide our ship. I’ve got a rule: every manager sticks to a maximum of three OKRs each quarter. Why? It keeps us focused, heading straight for success without getting lost.
📏 KPIs: Our Guiding Stars
We’ve got our North Stars—Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). They’re like signposts showing us how we’re doing. Sure, spreadsheets have their place, but we don’t follow them blindly looking only at the “number” in it. We focus on what really matters, keeping our KPIs short and sweet so everyone gets the bigger picture.
🔄 Learn, Adjust, Thrive: Keeping It Real with OKRs and KPIs
Business changes, and so do we. Every quarter, we take a good look at our goals—what worked, what didn’t. It’s not just about patting ourselves on the back; it’s about learning from what didn’t go as planned. This helps us adjust our goals, make them better. We don’t stick to a plan blindly; we adapt and grow, making sure our journey always fits our bigger mission.
