I expect this OKRs library will be a valuable resource for any organization working with OKRs.
Why I created this OKRs library
Key Performance Indicator (KPI) libraries are widely published. However, I’ve not seen a decent set of OKRs indexed by functional department and industry. Reading over examples of real-world OKRs is a great way to ramp up your knowledge on OKRs.
It’s not just me that thinks a library for OKRs is a good idea. When I asked Silicon Valley legend, John Doerr, if he saw value in a searchable database of sample OKRs, he said, “yes!”
The making of an OKRs library
After several years of coaching hundreds of teams all around the world, I estimate that I’ve now reviewed over 10,000 OKRs. I am pleased to share some of my experiences with these OKRs with you in this library. As you browse through the sample OKRs, I invite you to interact with me and other OKR experts with your comments and questions about specific OKRs in the library.
How do I access the OKRs library?
Originally, I tried to make the library be available for a small fee. However, I later decided to make the library free for everyone. The library is now built into this site’s main blog. Click here to see access the OKRs Blog which includes library-style posts featuring sample OKRs.
WHAT CLIENTS SAY?
Dun & Bradstreet
Senior Leader, Customer Analytics & Insights
Ben is a forward-thinking and collaborative business partner to Dun and Bradstreet. We regularly engage Ben for advice and guidance for all of our OKRs and priorities for Marketing. He has truly pushed our thinking and helped us establish meaningful and aspirational OKRs. We owe a lot of our success to Ben’s guidance and support.
Planning & Decision Technology Manager
Omid has helped us to shift from task-driven to outcome-driven priorities for our team.
It’s been enlightening working with Ben on our OKR framework. He is experienced and brings such to the table helping us learn very quickly. You witness his passion and thirst to perfecting his craft.
Chief of Staff
Dikran’s approach to OKRs is well-structured and to the point. He supported our deployment with a combination of training workshops and coaching feedback. I highly recommend Dikran as an OKRs coach.
First OKR Facilitator and Practitioner
Ben delivered an informative and energetic OKRs training for both our HR colleagues and Managers. It helped shape how we approach OKRs and has updated our understanding of OKRs. Thanks a lot for this great training.
Director of Services
Gerri has been instrumental in helping the management team at Pablo Group develop, deploy, execute, and measure our OKRs. Gerri was more than a consultant to our team. She was an active advisor invested in our success as a business and an engaging coach advocating for full team participation focused on helping us find our answers... I happily recommend Gerri to our colleagues.
Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder
Ben is the epitome of an all-star coach. He’s incredibly perceptive, a great listener, very socratic in his approach, and laser focused on improving performance. Given how powerful OKRs are to the focus and productivity of an entire organization, I’d say Ben is the most valuable consultant I’ve ever hired.
VP of Product Management
Omid has been a terrific coach, mentor, and thought-partner as our global teams transitioned our OKRs maturity from “crawling” to “walking.” We were stuck in a rut with our existing homegrown OKRs implementation. With Omid’s help, we’ve turned the ship around. We have seen strong momentum, and buy-in, from our teams. Better yet, this success has inspired the organization to take another look at OKRs. I highly recommend Omid to others looking for help in a complex, political organization.
Dikran facilitated an effective and extremely informational OKRs workshop with our leadership team. He was able to quickly educate us on OKRs and was flexible as we applied OKRs questioning throughout the day. Dikran gave us what we needed to take a shot at running through the three steps of an OKRs cycle on our own.
Philip G. Clark, Ph.D.
Ben brings his considerable experience working with a variety of clients to helping 3M identify how OKRs can be used within different teams and different situations. We particularly appreciated him helping us identify the “Why?” behind our objectives which in turn made us have stronger and more meaningful OKRs.
I’m delighted with Catherine Chen’s coaching service! The amount of effort and time saved driving results and accountability with Catherine’s help has been massive. We see increased alignment through focus on goals.
Ben and I worked together on implementing OKRs at Booking.com. I really enjoyed our collaboration as Ben is very easygoing, helpful and patient… He is always happy to continue the discussion and help grow your OKR knowledge.
Dikran helped us get OKRs implemented and on track. He was very engaging and quickly responded to questions. In a short period of time, it felt like he was part of our team, not an outside consultant.
Vice President, Engineering
Ben has helped us to rethink our approach to OKRs from the ground up. He has a unique ability to take what can be a very theoretical topic and make it very practical and straight forward. He has been a game changer for our organization.
Senior Strategy Director & Chief of Staff
Omid helped us diagnose our OKRs framework and coached us to improve it based on best practices and our unique requirements. His consulting experience and deep knowledge of OKRs helped us successfully launch v2.0 of our OKR framework.
Jason A. Meyerhoeffer
President and CEO
Dikran was extremely helpful. We had started with OKRs ourselves and were struggling with the implementation of the framework. Dikran was able to answer our questions and coach us through the process.
Chief of Staff
Omid is a real OKRs expert. He was able to answer all our questions and tailor the OKRs framework to precisely what our company needed. Omid’s training workshop with our entire executive team along with his ongoing 1:1 coaching support dramatically improved the quality of our OKRs. Overall, Omid’s coaching has made a positive impact on our organization.
Head of Finance & Customer Care
Ben provides ongoing support on introducing OKRs at Zalando in a very pragmatic way. He kicked-off Objectives & Key Results as a mindset shift. I highly recommend Ben as an enabler for organizational mindset changes regarding target setting – always a pleasure to cooperate with him!
Gerri helped me understand the best way to apply OKRs methods for my company. The acceleration we had thanks to the work done with Gerri has been impressive.
Harry, Wang Zhizhong
D.Light Design Limited Group
Co-Founder & Managing Director
At the end of 2017, I met Ben Lamorte. It was the tenth year of D.Light Design Limited as a world-renowned organization. It was at a time when the new businesses of subsidiaries in various countries were developing rapidly, and the organizational structure and performance appraisal mechanism urgently needed significant adjustments.
Rashid Al Ghurair
Founder & CEO
Omid helped us structure a great OKRs program and brought clarity to our entire leadership team; CAFU is now a high-performing organization. I highly recommend Omid’s coaching to any growing organization looking to deploy an effective OKRs program that can unleash their full potential.
Global Talent Director
Omid’s support was invaluable. He helped us write OKRs more effectively and supported our OKRs program in several ways from refining our approach for OKRs globally, to training and coaching teams and OKR champions across all countries and central functions. Teams provided very positive feedback and were impressed with Omid’s knowledge and expertise.
Ben’s guidance, support materials, presentations and willingness to speak directly with our teams contributes hand-in-glove with TCGplayer’s ability to continue to scale up successfully. We are very happy to recommend Ben’s amazing OKR guru work, as he has helped us advance quickly in a short period of time.
The LegalTech Fund
Co-Founder & Managing Director
We needed an OKRs Coach to help us create and implement OKRs. Gerri taught, coached, listened, and engaged our entire team and provided the tools we needed to stand up our OKR program and take it to the next level.
Regional Overseas Leadership Team
The biggest takeaway from Ben’s OKRs training is that by knowing how to set objectives and key results, we have the information of “Who does what? When? And How”. We now have clear information which can move the needle.
Speedway Motors Inc.
VP People, Purchasing, and Marketing
Ben’s coaching style is easy to work with while still being straight forward. He listens to your needs/ideas, provides objective feedback and is able to structure what you are saying. It's been an absolute pleasure to hop on a Zoom with Ben. I'm looking forward to a long future together.
