WHAT ARE OKRs?2020-10-19T17:10:59+00:00

WHAT ARE OKRs?

Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) methodology is a widespread strategy for goal setting within some of the best, high growth organizations. The purpose of OKRs is to align the company, team, and their personal goals towards measurable results while having all team members working together in one unified direction.

OKRs were first introduced and defined by Andy Grove for Intel in the 70s. Today, OKRs are a fundamental piece for guiding many organizations like Google, LinkedIn, Intel, Zynga, Sears, and Oracle….

An Objective represents WHAT you want to achieve. Objectives are qualitative goals. They have to be ambitious and set the direction and focus of the company, team, or individual in a specific period of time. The objective has to be significant and action-oriented, but also challenging: the principle of inspiration.

Key Results define HOW you are going to achieve that Objective. Key Results have to be specific, time-bound, and metric-driven; measurable, and verifiable. They have to show the path that needs to be taken to reach the objective.

The Objective is the desired outcome and the Key Results are the measurable steps or “pieces” required to achieve that outcome. It is important to define enough relevant KRs that when reached, will produce the outcome.

Initiatives are tasks and assignments that need to be executed in order to achieve Key Result milestones; they are things that you do. The owners of Initiatives must have full control over completing them which means completing them should not be dependent on something or someone else.

WHAT IS AN OKR PERIOD?2020-10-19T17:12:59+00:00

WHAT IS AN OKR PERIOD?

The OKR Period is a portion of time during which your organization, teams, and individuals focus on delivering their OKRs. The most commonly used period in OKRs is the quarter as it is long enough to plan, execute, review, and take corrective action on your OKRs, but also short enough to be truly focused and aligned on them.

WHAT OKR ADOPTION BEST PRACTICES ARE RECOMMENDED?2020-10-19T17:23:53+00:00

WHAT OKR ADOPTION BEST PRACTICES ARE RECOMMENDED?

OKRs have to enable the whole organization to work in the same direction (Alignment), with a common and clear target (Focus) that is easily measurable (Tracking) and that motivates people to deliver the best of themselves (Stretching).

Focus-Alignment-Tracking-Stretching are the characteristics of good OKRs and as John Doerr defined in his book “Measure What Matters”, the “Superpowers” that OKRs give to organizations. There are several best practices that can be utilized when implementing OKRs within your organization.

Objectives

  • Simply WHAT you want to achieve
  • Important, concrete and action oriented
  • Between 3 to 5 Objectives per person

Key Results

  • They benchmark and monitor HOW we get to the objective
  • KR should be concise, specific, and measurable
  • KRs typically include hard numbers
  • Between 2 to 5 Key Results per Objective

Let’s see it in an example:

Objective:

  • Improve Sales Team satisfaction 

Key Results:

  • Define Team Building Activities plan by April
  • Coach key people in the Sales team by May
  • Execute the Team building activities plan in Q1
  • Run the Employee Satisfaction Survey by mid-June: Employee Satisfaction Index >89%

This objective has been defined for the second quarter of the year (Period) and it has four Key Results, each of them with a Due Date and a Target Result, so therefore totally measurable.

Alignment is key for organizational success. By aligning OKRs, you can set Top-Down or request Bottom-Up objectives

Setting Top-Down objectives ensures that the organization is completely aligned with the Company Goals. On the other hand, asking for Bottom-Up objectives leverages the commitment, innovation, and knowledge of every person in your organization towards the achievement of your goals.

A good balance between both types of objectives is key to OKR implementation success. The best practice is to set at least 50%-60% of the objectives Top-Down.

In order to guarantee alignment in the organization, every objective has to be related to the Company Goal in some way: it could be a direct child of the Company Goal or it could be related to an upper Objective through a parent Key Result. Each objective in the organization has to be related and contribute to another objective through one of its key results.

This way, the whole organization is aligned with the Company goal and Main Objectives.

DOES AXY OKR SUPPORT CLASSIC SALESFORCE UI?2020-10-19T17:44:32+00:00

DOES AXY OKR SUPPORT CLASSIC SALESFORCE UI?

Axy OKR was developed for the Lightning Experience UI (LEX). However, you can still install Axy OKR and use it even if you only use the Classic UI in your org.

We developed Axy OKR for LEX since Salesforce announced in their spring ’19 release notes that they will no longer be adding features to the Classic UI. Every new feature that Salesforce develops for each of its Clouds will only be available for the LEX.

If you are still using the Classic UI in your Salesforce org, you can use Axy OKR by switching from Classic UI to LEX every time you want to use our app (Every user can switch from one UI to the other if your Admin configures it in your org).

It is really easy:

You have to be sure that  My Domain is deployed in Your Salesforce Org as it is required to use Lightning components, the basis for LEX.

  • When My Domain isn’t deployed in your org, user interface controls related to Lightning components may be hidden or inactive. Lightning components added to pages, tabs, and so on, don’t run and may be omitted or display a placeholder error message.

Deploying My Domain for your org is very straight forward.

  • Go to Setup, find My Domain, and start the process following the instructions.

For a detailed description on how to deploy it, you can visit My Domain help in Salesforce Help. Here is a short video on what My Domain is and how to set it up.

In some cases the Axy OKR installation could fail because the installation user doesn’t have the ‘Change Dashboard Color’ permission enabled. If this is the case, please follow these steps:

  • Create a new permission set.
  • Find the Change Dashboard Color permission and select it.
  • Assign the new permission set to the installation user.
  • Try to install the app again.

HOW ARE PERMISSIONS MANAGED BY AXY OKR?2020-10-19T17:57:33+00:00

HOW ARE PERMISSIONS MANAGED BY AXY OKR?

In Axy OKR you have three Permission Sets to assign to users with different functions and permissions:

  • Axy OKR – User. This permission set gives standard access to the app including every app object, mainly Objectives and Key Results.
  • Axy OKR – C-Level User. This permission is designed for C-Level people, Directors, Managers, etc… the team members with the highest responsibility in managing the organization. These users have the same access as an Axy OKR – User but with Full Access to Company Goal records including View All and Modify All permissions.
  • Axy OKR – Admin User. With this permission set, the assigned user has the same access as an Axy OKR – User, with the ability to access and set up the app in the Setup tab.

Important note: You have to assign at least one Axy OKR – Admin User and one Axy OKR – C-Level User permission set.

You can add several permission sets to the same user. For example, you can assign Axy OKR – Admin User and Axy OKR – C-Level User to the same user.

To assign them, follow the next steps for each of the three Axy OKR permission sets:

  • Go to Setup
  • Find for Permission Sets
  • Click on any of the Axy OKR permission sets and then Manage Assignments
  • Click on Add Asignments
  • You will then see the list of users in your Salesforce org. Check the boxes of the users you want to assign that permission set to and click Assign.

WHAT IS A COMPANY GOAL AND HOW TO USE IT CORRECTLY?2020-10-19T18:45:44+00:00

What is a Company Goal and how to use it correctly?

The concept of Company Goal represents a Single Strategic view that the entire organization should follow in an annual period. It also defines  the cycle that your team should organize your OKRs within.

When you start planning your OKRs for the year, you must first set your Company Goal and the OKR Cycle structure:

  • The period for the Company goal and the main Company OKRs (normally a year)
  • The periods for the OKR execution during the year (usually Quarters)
  • The Planning and Wrap-Up time for every period (usually one or two weeks at the beginning and end of the period)

Main Company OKRs will then be defined from the Company Goal. Axy OKR provides a wizard in order to create the Company Goal, the Periods, and one main Company OKR. You must define the rest of the main Company OKRs that you need.

As an example, the wizard will help you create the following:

Company Goal: First one in market share in 2020

  • Main Objective 1: Double size at the end of fiscal year 2020 (Yearly Period)
    • Key Result 1.1: Launch at least two new product releases
    • Key Result 1.2: $57M revenue in 2020
    • Key Result 1.3: Increase NPS by 20%

Then you have to create the rest of the main Company OKRs. Continuing with the example:

  • Main Objective 2: Engage employees and increase loyalty (Yearly Period)
    • Key Result 2.1: Get Best Place to Work certification
    • Key Result 2.2: Improve referral program by 15%
    • Key Result 2.3: Reduce employee attrition by 17%
  • Main Objective 3: ………

The Company Goal and main company OKRs are set as private by default. This ensures that the Management and C-Level executives have enough time to discuss and define the OKRs and basic strategy to follow. Once agreed, they are shared with the rest of the organization and marked as public afterward, after which the rest of the team is able to create OKRs related to any higher level OKR.

WHAT TYPE OF KEY RESULTS AXY OKR HAVE?2020-10-20T22:47:07+00:00

WHAT TYPE OF KEY RESULTS AXY OKR HAVE?

Key results in Axy OKR can be measured as boolean, number, percentage, currency, or TODO types. All of these types allow assigning a target value to a Key Result in order to measure the progress. These types are used to measure different categories of KRs:

  • To reach or meet a specific outcome, use NUMBER or CURRENCY
  • To reduce or increase any metric in a portion, use PERCENTAGE
  • For reaching thresholds or meeting specific conditions, use BOOLEAN (Yes/No)
  • If you want to track milestones or activities, then use TODO
WHAT IS PROGRESS AND ACHIEVEMENT IN AXY OKR?2020-10-20T22:48:50+00:00

WHAT IS PROGRESS AND ACHIEVEMENT IN AXY OKR?

Axy OKR has several parameters for assessing the progress and achievement status of both Objectives and Key Results.

OBJECTIVES have several fields that indicate status and all of them are automatically calculated. The two main ones are Progress and Achievement.

  • PROGRESS (%). Indicates the percentage of progress based on the Progress of KRs and the weight of each KR in its contribution to the OBJECTIVE
    – Example: An OBJECTIVE with two KRs, one with 100% progress and a weight of 40% and another with 40% progress and a weight of 60% will result in an OBJECTIVE PROGRESS of 64%.
  • ACHIEVEMENT FORECAST. An indicator of the progress in relation to the elapsed time. If it is less than 100%, it indicates that there may be a risk of not reaching it
  • ACHIEVEMENT. This field is calculated automatically if desired, or assigned manually. It is an indicator of the progress of the OBJECTIVE. If it is automatic, it is calculated based on the Achievement forecast and the time remaining to reach the OBJECTIVE.

HOW CAN I USE FILTERS TO NAVIGATE IN THE TREE VIEW?2020-10-20T22:52:33+00:00

HOW CAN I USE FILTERS TO NAVIGATE IN THE TREE VIEW?

Alignment is key to organizational success. For aligning OKRs, the Tree View is a powerful visual tool and will enable you to:

  • See the complete scheme of OKRs dependencies and contributions.
  • Find how every objective owner is contributing to the parent OKR 
    • Objective details and key results are accessible by clicking on every box
  • Navigate through the tree using the filters and search boxes:
    • Selecting the root company goal
    • Filtering by objective achievement 
    • Showing all or only your objectives 
    • Showing the complete hierarchy of the objectives or a number of tree levels
    • Searching objectives by name or by owner
  • Switch from a pure Tree view to a Tab List view, whatever is more convenient for you
