Use OKRs to define your objectives and focus on your key results.
If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
The goal of this method is to define measurable goals within eager objectives and track their progress within a short period of time. Due to the alignment of energy synergy effects are more likely. It also helps individual team members to focus on the next relevant objectives.
On this website there are no resources to learn how to use OKRs effectively. It provides a tool to use OKRs with Confluence and the projectdoc Toolbox. In Working with OKRs we show how these doctypes play together. You would still need to define your OKR cycle that suits your company.
We recommend to read John Doerr's book Measure what Matters: OKRs – the Simple Idea That Drives 10× Growth. You'll find more information on this book on John Doerr's website What Matters.
