    “OKRs have helped us on the road to growth many, many times” -Larry Page, co-founder of GoogleWhat Google, Intel, Zynga, Linkedin, and The Gates Foundation have in common? OKRs. OKRs, or Objectives and Key Results, translate a company’s vision and strategy into a coherent set of performance measures. They offer a balance between long-term goals and short-term planning; between outcomes that are desired by the organization and actual performance KPIs that measure these outcomes; between the results we want to achieve and the efforts needed to do it. Francisco H. de Mello, founder of Qulture.Rocks, a Y Combinator alumn and the leading strategy execution company, takes you through the history of using goals for management, from MBOs to OKRs, and presents OKRs with a focus on how you can implement them at your company.
