Let's talk about our tool for a minute. Yaguara is built on the OKR methodology. Sounds lovely, but what is this OKR you speak of?
OKRs are an organizational goal-setting framework popularized by Intel and Google. Its purpose is to take all the hard work you have spent identifying the company growth strategy and then allowing the team to absorb the information in a straight-forward way. Thus giving clear direction, empowering everyone to work towards the big picture.
In the Yaguara platform your team will work with three major components:
Objectives - The highest-ranking component, acting as a parent to all the other pieces. This is where you set the most important initiatives to unite the teams. Whether it be the master plan or a quarterly goal, Objectives will be the guiding light for your company’s growth.
Key Results - How your teams track performance and measure results for a greater Objective. This is where you can easily integrate the data from your favorite tools to start working in real-time. Keep in mind Key Results can be quantitate or qualitative depending on the outcome needed.
To-Dos - The actionable input to drive the desired outcomes. This is where the everyday activity takes place, the simple steps you can take.
Summarized nicely by OKR trailblazer John Doerr:
"In this goal-setting system, objectives define what we seek to achieve; key results are how those top-priority goals will be attained with specific, measurable actions within a set time frame. Everyone's goals, from entry level to CEO, are transparent to the entire organization."
