How and why Spotify ditched individual OKRs

The other day I came across this post on Spotify’s HR blog: Why individual OKRs don’t work for us. It’s an interesting read, especially when it comes from a company as successful as Spotify. It’s a short read and I highly recommend that you read it, but here are some of the parts I found

Introducing Gtmhub Pulse

When a team introduces OKRs, one thing that happens very quickly is a full information overload. Transparency is great, but even teams of medium size will quickly generate 40-50 objectives and over 100 key results. While it is relatively simple to find out what Joe from HR is doing, having a quick view of the information

Why do OKRs fail?

Not every team that decides to implement OKRs will succeed in doing so. We, at Gtmhub – just as other vendors – will give advice and point out solutions, but the fact is that OKRs are not a right fit for every team. In this post we will share what we’ve learned over the years working

Customize your OKR process

There is one thing we’ve learned while helping different companies adopt OKRs – it’s always a little bit different. While the basic methodology is always more or less the same, the size, stage, industry and culture of different companies demand from the product to adapt. To this end, we’ve released a new powerful feature to

Organizing OKRs into initiatives and areas

With the latest release of Gtmhub, we now support tags for Objectives. While, alignment remains the main way to organize and make sense of OKRs within an organization, we have found that often secondary taxonomy is needed. Our clients have identified two main use cases for tags: initiatives and areas.

OKR confidence level setting

One of the key ideas of OKRs is communication around progress. So far, Gtmhub has been automatically calculating progress and juxtaposing it with the time passed in order to determine how well an objective is progressing. Many times, however, there are circumstances that are beyond this simple approach. For example, if your objective is related

Key results with soft and hard deadlines

A customer recently told us following case: “My objectives are all product related and timing is everything. For this quarter I need to improve the user engagement and to do that I need to release 3 features, but it won’t matter a thing if I don’t hit my deadlines – and those are all before

Looking at OKRs from people perspective

There are two ways to use OKRs. From one side, we can look at the objectives and how well are they being executed. On the other side, we can look at people and teams, and see how well are they executing against these objectives. With the latest updates, Gtmhub is delivering the people centric perspective on

Anatomy of an OKR: How to set your OKRs

We start with the goals that we want to achieve. From these goals, we derive the objectives that when accomplished will have desired impact on our goals. We then define key results which when hit will mean we have accomplished our objective. Finally, we decide on how exactly are we going to use our resources (such as time) to accomplish our key results – and those are tasks.
