Installing OKRs from the industry-first Marketplace

Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) -> Everybody’s doing it. Of course, you’re already well aware of OKRs, and how Google and all these big companies use it to stay aligned and maintain focus on what matters. Maybe you’ve even read John Doerr’s book Measure What Matters. Well, the hype is REAL. OKRs are disrupting the status quo in organizations and becoming instrumental in achieving business prosperity. You’ve probably decided that it’s time for you and your team to try OKRs (and if you haven’t made that decision, why not?). 

So, now what? Starting something new is often daunting. Successfully setting an OKRs process can be a struggle not only for those just starting out, but also for experienced users. Reaping all the benefits from this powerful goal-setting framework might prove to be more difficult than expected and transforming into the next Google – a distant mirage.

A dirty little secret – writing great OKRs is no mean feat. Is the one objective you chose too aspirational? Is this Key Result measurable enough? And what about department or role-based OKRs, especially in larger organizations? You’ll most definitely hear questions like “What are some example OKRs for a VP Engineering?” or “What are good OKRs for my Marketing team?”.

OKRs Marketplace

At Gtmhub we say – no more “I don’t know how to make a good OKRs!”  

We understand that you need some OKR examples to spark creativity and set your goals effectively. But even that isn’t enough. To solve your quick start problem, we have just introduced the Industry’s first OKRs Marketplace! 

Gtmhub’s OKRs marketplace enables you to install pre-configured OKRs with one simple click, much like you install apps on your smartphone. With our Marketplace, you can grab the appropriate OKR and then use it as is or modify it to suit your needs. Using the Marketplace gets you up and running with Gtmhub and OKRs in literally no time. 

The Marketplace can be extremely valuable to companies of all sizes – from startups to large enterprises. Small businesses can easily browse best-in-class examples, ‘quick-start’ their OKR sessions and avoid losing precious time researching how to come up with proper OKRs. Large organizations, on the other hand, will have a clear image of what goals should be set for different departments, teams, and positions. This will limit unnecessary ‘havoc’ within the company as employees will be well-informed on guidelines and expectations – no time-consuming frustrations and indecisiveness. “Remember that time is money,” (American revolutionary statesman Benjamin Franklin coined the phrase not us) and think of all the time money you’ll save using Marketplace to accelerate your OKRs deployments.

What’s next?

We have big plans for our Marketplace. The Gtmhub Marketplace is designed to support organizations in identifying an effective business strategy and executing it efficiently. You probably wonder how we’ll help you do that. Now that we’ve enabled you to install OKRs directly from our Marketplace, two of our next steps are crystal clear: 

1. Insights 

We will take our Marketplace to the next level and add access to Insights & Apps. If you are a Gtmhub user, you already know that OKRs and Insights go together like bread and butter in our world. Insights (plus Dynamic Key Results) can do wonders for your goal-setting process. You want to know the number of completed tasks in Trello? Want to track the number of closed epics in JIRA? Perhaps you want to know the size of the pipeline in SalesForce in real time? You will soon be able to get your hands-on hundreds of top-notch, pre-configured Insights and directly connect them to your OKRs with just a few clicks. 

2. Contributions  

Currently, the Marketplace is limited to a pre-approved set of contributors. Fortunately, we’re shortly opening it to submissions from all Gtmhub users. Organizations will soon be able to leverage the power of intra-company synergies –one team creates a practical Insight, another team will install it in their Insightboard. Or a team is expert in creating state-of-the-art quarterly OKRs, they can upload them to the Marketplace and share the magic. 

The open-for-contributions platform will enable all of you to take advantage of the community’s shared knowledge and creativeness. We’ll leave it to your imagination as to what powerful innovations might surface. We’re excited to wait and see.  

Hopefully, you like what you’re hearing! As always, we’ll keep you in the loop on all our future developments.
