Objectives for autonomous teams

Objectives for autonomous teams

Set your OKRs such that they state what the business needs and that they leave enough room for interpretation and creativity.

Otherwise, if you set prescriptive OKRs, you'll turn them into a micromanagement tool and you'll take away the autonomy of your team.

Example of how to set an objective:

  • Good: Increase onboarding conversion rate ← It mentions what needs to be done and it's up to the team how to do it.
  • BadMake the onboarding flow better ← It limits the team to perfecting the in-app experience, and doesn't leave room to look at pricing, packaging, e-mails etc.

Example of a bad objective

Example of a bad objective

Imagine you landed on a new shore and the crew were tasked with finding food for the night. That would be achievable. Maybe they go hunting. Perhaps they go foraging. Maybe they set up traps. As long as you’re not picky, you’ll all get fed.

However, if the leader of the journeying crew said the objective was to get a steak dinner, the team would have likely missed great opportunities for other edible options, and everyone would have gone hungry.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
