- For Q3, we are working on launching Objectives and key results (OKRs) for the company.
- Here’s my recent article about what I accomplished at Curalie GmbH.
- Inspired by the book Measure What Matters and this article which describes about what you are good / bad at vs what you like / dislike, I asked my directs to fill in the following table:
- The term
Badnecessarily doesn’t mean what you are bad at, but it also means what you want to improve on, sometimes you haven’t had the time to do a particular task despite you having liked it etc.
- At first, I did this activity myself and realised how difficult it was to arrive at the columns for dislike & bad and dislike & good. The latter was easier than the former.
- Having realised this, I asked everyone to think deep and reflect on the nature of the work, learning curve, product etc. to be able to figure out the difficult parts.
- The gist of this table is to ensure that nothing is really there on the dislike & bad column.
- If something is there then that should be the immediate action item to work on.
- Once this activity was done, the next step was to align this table with the OKRs.
- The alternate way to look at this table is to look at the Good and the Bad columns from a company’s perspective.
- For example, if you mentioned something in the Bad column, you could look into this as
if this is really bad for the company.
- So Good for you, might be Bad for the company or vice versa.
- Based on this, it gets quite easy to create objectives and key results for a quarter.
