When just starting with OKRs, many organizations decide to start with something simple – often a Google Sheets or Excel template. Most people think that an OKRs platform can only help them once they master OKRs, but good OKR software can help you along the whole journey. Ultimately, an organization will use OKRs and Gtmhub

One of the best things about OKRs is that they are a very quantitative, unbiased way to track goals and measure success. When you quantify your goals through key results, there is no much room for interpration. If you decided that you will get 20 customer testimonials, than you progress is pretty clear – regardless

At the beginning of each quarter, the very first OKR I define for myself is a meta-objective: Kill it with OKRs. I’ve shared this practice with numerous people, and many think that this is some dogfooding exercise – us being the OKR Platform vendor. But, no – it’s not that. As a CEO, I think that

OKRs are a white-hot topic at the moment. The management methodology which took roots in technology companies of Silicon Valley is now being implemented by banks, cities, corporates; small startups and world’s largest enterprises equally. While there is undeniable hype around OKRs, some are wondering if the whole thing is not just a fad. Is

The key question is not whether to use OKRs or KPIs. Rather the opportunity is to use both OKRs and KPIs to drive positive change, while managing the business as usual in the best way possible.

The worlds largest banks are playing catch up. After retreating to lick their wounds after the near death experience of the Great Financial Crisis ten year ago, banks are back, fighting to demonstrate that innovation is not just a game for trendy startups. Mention the phrase “Core Banking Systems” you may either draw a blank

One of the pillars of OKRs and the Gtmhub Platform is Transparency.  We believe the more information a company gives about the key priorities and progress towards these goals, the more this helps align and engage employees.  To help provide more context and transparency around OKRs, we are updating a few sections of our product

At the start of each quarter, one of the things I enjoy the most is setting passive-aggressive OKRs. Yeah, I am a lot of fun to work with. In general, I think people underestimate the potential of fringe management approaches such as embracing awkwardness or practicing the art of passive-aggressiveness – but, that’s a whole another

OKRs are simple, but not easy. The main problem people have when defining their OKRs is switching from an output (what I need to do) to an outcome (what I need to achieve) mindset. This is particularly true in functions such as software development, where releasing features [on time] and fixing bugs has traditionally been

There is a lot of talk about the value (or not) of stretch goals. Practiced and preached for decades, stretch goals are not new. However, in our experience, we see an emerging misunderstanding of what stretching means, and how to achieve stretch performance.

What is relevance? Yuval Noah Harari’s latest book, 21 lessons for the 21st Century is a great quick read. Describing how new technologies are impacting labour markets, Harari identifies a new threat to workers everywhere: irrelevance. Whereas workers in the 20th century were at risk of exploitation, in the future, billions of workers will face the prospect
