OKR Examples of Good Objectives

When looking to set OKRs, it’s natural to want examples to ignite the thought process or simply compare your OKRs to existing to OKR Examples.

The sad truth is that 95% Employees cannot name the top Objectives of their company (Source – Robert Kaplan). This stands detrimental in being able to align your actions with your goals. Aside from the clarity that one requires in seeing the big picture and measuring where they are headed, communicating your goals is a big challenge. Employees need to know how their contributions are adding up to the company bottom-lines. This is the strongest source of inspiration and motivation for people at the workplace.
