What performance secret can you learn from Google, Intel, and Intuit?

Objectives and Key Results, also known as OKRs, have become very popular as a way to improve company performance. They have powered success at companies like Google, Intel, and Intuit.

OKRs can improve your company’s performance by increasing:

  • Focus
  • Transparency
  • Trust
  • Cooperation
  • Employee engagement
  • Accountability
  • Alignment
  • Agility
  • Innovation

Simple but Powerful

The structure of OKRs is very simple. An OKR is comprised of:

  • An objective: an outcome you want to achieve
  • Key results: the criteria to measure the achievement of an objective

This simplicity and clarity attract many business leaders to OKRs. It’s what also allows rapid iteration and ease of communication. OKRs focus on frequent iteration and innovation. This promotes setting OKRs across the organization and cross-team coordination.

Each objective is a significant step toward increasing value for your company, employees, and customers. OKRs align your company’s efforts to help achieve your company’s strategy. They help with goal setting, decluttering, goal achievement, and so much more.

Let me be your guide

I’m Rob Stephens, founder of CFO Perspective. CFO Perspective, which provides continuing education courses for CPAs as well as financial management courses for business advisors and staff. During my career, I’ve been the CFO, SVP of Finance, or Director of Operations of companies from just a few employees to $3 billion in assets and hundreds of employees.

Facilitating the process of picking KPIs, monitoring them, and managing them were key duties at those companies. I have a course on KPIs. However, when I started my small business and worked with other small businesses, KPIs alone and some planning processes I used at larger companies didn’t fit. 

That’s when I became interested in OKRs. The OKR process has served many small businesses well and has become a very popular performance management process. I use it in my business for better performance and would love to show you how you can use it in your business so you can achieve your goals.
