In the last chapter we’ve briefly acquainted ourselves with Objectives & Key Results (OKRs). Before we jump into the process of implementing OKRs, let us take a step back & think holistically about the goal setting process.
Intent of this chapter is to put things in perspective. Rather than adopting OKRs just because they are in vogue, we want you to understand the current state of goal setting in your team & introspect if it is success or failure. There is no reason to move to OKRs unless you see a shortcoming in the current process.
This chapter will help you understand the bigger picture, before we delve deep into the OKR implementation process. At the end of lesson 3, a small exercise is provided to help you gauge current state of affairs.
