Get started with OKRs

Are your development teams still focused on ploughing through the endless backlog of product features, unaware of how they meet your product and organisational vision? Or worse, hindering your ability to deliver it.

Objectives and key results (OKRs) are a goal-setting framework for truly agile organisations. You can use OKRs to drive your roadmap to achieve your organisational goals, keeping you aligned with the company vision and delivering customer value. Switch to a goal-orientated OKR roadmap, forget the legacy feature list, and focus on achieving your OKRs each quarter instead.

Need an OKR template to get you started?

If you are here, you are ready to start articulating your goals. We have a handy OKR tracking template created by our agile experts at Aligned Agility to get you started. But maybe you're unsure how to write them or what to share; we have a template to help you.

Our OKR template will guide you through a popular and proven goal-setting process and documentation method. With this template, you'll outline 1-3 big objectives and decide the results you want to see. The built-in OKR calculations will help you to define your goals; then, you're set.
