How-to Guide to Writing Good OKRs with
Example Objectives and Key Results
When getting started with OKRs — Objectives and Key Results —
the most common questions we get at Weekdone are:
- How to write good OKRs?
- Can you give me examples of good OKRs?
- What should I put in my OKRs?
To answer these questions we created this database of example OKRs so you
can get started and write your own company, department, team, or personal OKRs.
