Should your company adopt Objectives & Key Results (OKRs)? Is a purpose-led workforce with the latitude for real decision-making really important?

Apparently, most of us are ready to wear a plastic armband that needs to be charged every few days, so that we can be 100% sure we made 10,000 steps a day. Not 9,754 or, God forbid, 8,943 steps. It has to be 10,000 – because that’s the goal. Oh yes… and we have to
