What is an OKR?
OKR stands for Objective & Key Results and is a way of formulating a goal with both a high level of purpose (Objective) and a set of clearly stated results that needs to happen (Key Results) in order to deem the Objective successful. You can say that the Objective is a description of something meaningful that needs to happen, and the key result is the proof that it has happened. We hope the below OKR Examples within Innovation will get you some ideas to get going with your own OKRs.
The Structure of an OKR
The Objective: WHAT we want to see happen.
Key Result 1: Measurable OUTCOME that needs to happen.
Key Result 2: Measurable OUTCOME that needs to happen.
Within the Innovation space, the most common types of roles driving change include CEOs, Business Developers and C-suite level executives in general.
