How do companies implement OKRs?

OKRs are a type of performance management system that helps businesses track and achieve their goals. But how many levels should OKRs have?

2 methods of implementing OKRs are:

No one-size-fits-all answer to this question exists, as every company is different. However, there are some basic steps that every company can take to implement OKRs. There are two main approaches: top-down and bottom-up.

The top-down approach is when goals are set by upper management and then cascaded down to lower levels. For example, leadership might set one company-level goal and then set each department head a Key Result, then which department head or team leader will set their individual team initiatives. The bottom-up approach is the opposite. This is when teams or departments set their own goals based on ongoing projects and results. The Key Results cascade up to the leadership level. While this approach seems less linked to overall company goals, it does have some positives, such as allowing for more buy-in and ownership of the goals.

The bottom-up approach is the opposite, this is when teams or departments set their own goals based on-going projects and results. Then Key Results cascade up to leadership level. While this approach seems less linked to overall company goals it does have some positive such as allowing for more buy-in and ownership of the goals.
