This part of the series highlights how to track OKRs weekly, the first activity in the execution phase of the OKR cycle.
To begin, let us understand what an OKR cycle is. An OKR cycle is a 3-phased cycle, where each phase consists of a few significant steps that make the phase and the entire cycle successful. When the cycle is repeated, organizations constantly improve and produce the OKR outcomes of Focus, Alignment, Rhythm, and Agility. These four components of success or OKR superpowers are the processes and practices organizations adopt to speed up their performance and accomplish extraordinary results.
- Tracking OKRs helps to monitor progress over time, showing that you are successfully moving towards the indicated business goals.
- You improve team motivation and productivity by tracking OKRs and making them the focal point in your tactical and strategic planning.
- OKR tracking helps optimize the process by utilizing real data and not just guesswork as you enter the next cycle.
