  15. 15. 15 Some Best Practices to Remember • Focus on 3-5 objectives at a time ‒ With 3-5 key results for each • At least 60% of objectives should be bottom up - Too much top-down dictation kills motivation and aspiration • Performance evaluations should be completely separate from OKRs - Keeping the two separate encourages workers to set aspirational OKRs - Tying the two together stunts innovative thinking, and leads to sandbagging
  16. 16. 16 Grading OKRs • Grading and reflecting on past OKR progress is critical for setting future OKRs • According to John Doerr & Google, a total grade of 60 - 70% = sweet-spot Larry’s Objective Win Super Bowl Owner Status Grade • 1. 200 yards a game passing attack Jeff • 250 yrds/game • 2. 3rd ranked defense in NFL Joe • 9th ranked defense • 3. 25 yard punt return average Aaron • 10 yrds punt return avg TOTAL 1 0.7 0.4 0.7
  17. 17. 17 Taking OKRs to the Next Level • They have not reached their full potential ‒ Held back by antiquated implementation • OKRs are powerful when they are: ‒ Adaptable and dynamic. Not static ‒ Open and connected. Not siloed • Fortunately, innovative technologies and Goal Science™ are bringing OKRs into the modern age Kris Duggan CEO of BetterWorks “OKRs are a timeless framework, but the methods for implementing them are antiquated. They need to be modernized.”
