In 2022, the LC will learn about and explore using the OKR goal management methodology to help align Group work with the overall Vision and Mission of Kantara.

What are OKRs?

The acronym OKR stands for Objectives and Key Results, a popular goal management framework that helps companies implement and execute strategy. 

An OKR consists of an Objective, which tells you where to go, and several Key Results, which are the results you need to achieve to get to your Objective. Initiatives are all the projects and tasks that will help you achieve your Key Results. - good video series - examples of OKRs

As we’ve talked about, Objectives come from, and are inspired by, your mission. The mission is usually the big, pie-in-the-sky thing that everyone is working together to achieve. And Objectives are the goals that are the most important things you need to do to achieve that mission. They’re the rallying cries for your team for the next cycle. John and I sometimes refer to your most top-level Objective as your team’s “North Star.”
