OKRs are the hot trend nowadays. Nonetheless, it makes a lot of sense in fast paced businesses to seek for techniques which help to focus on what is the most important.
Objective Key Result (OKR) is a goal-setting and defining framework. It was created in Intel and evangelized by Andy Grove in his book “High Output Management”.
Objective – a description of a goal to be achieved in the future. Each objective should consist of 3 to 5 Key Results to be achieved.
Key Result – a metric with a starting value and a target value that measures progress towards an objective
So in our Kanban Board template the first thing is to use rows as Objectives. Give it a title and deadline (good objectives have deadline in the future). Then we should create work items as key results in for each objective.
To symbolize progress for key results we will use Kanban columns. If key results can be broken down, we should do so and include child items as key initiatives under each key result. Kanban card color coding will be used for visual reporting. For industry specialized templates check this post from Weekdone.
