Published by: Business Expert Press
Originally published in: 2022

Abstract

This chapter is excerpted 'Moving the Needle With Lean OKRs'. This book introduces a thorough but lightweight goal setting system for achieving breakthrough corporate results. OKR is shorthand for 'Objective and Key Results' - a goal-setting tool for both individuals and teams that involves setting ambitious goals that have measurable results. Lean OKRs are the evolved version of the OKR strategy execution tool that has powered the transformational journeys of giants like Google and Facebook. Den Haak's expansive experience in corporate coaching, solid theoretical background, and fresh voice make this insightful publication an asset for business students and leaders who are starting-up or expanding their enterprise. The tested, easy-to-use method the book presents is rooted in applied behavioral science and management techniques, building on Toyota Kata, Cynefin, 4DX, and even game design. Thus, it is perfectly fitted to meet the needs of contemporary companies who want to achieve 'big hairy audacious goals' in a world of increasing uncertainty. The book presents insightful anecdotes, creative exercises, clear figures, and step-by-step models to make the reader familiar with the Lean OKRs systematic method. Designed to be a comprehensive guide, it covers everything from theoretical roots to the practical execution of OKR workshops, from implementation procedures to integrating metrics on dashboards, and from company-wide strategy alignment to emotional management. Applicable to small companies as well as large organizations, Lean OKRs drives innovation through behavioral changes, empowering and motivating teams, and bringing the soul back to OKRs. Practical and to the point throughout, the book convincingly integrates a unique combination of structural and leadership strategies, resulting in a new approach to OKRs that conquers the hurdles experienced by most companies today.
