What is an OKR?

We hope the below OKR Examples within Innovation will get you off to a good start with your new OKRs.

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.

Key Result 1: Measurable OUTCOME that needs to happen.
