OKRs and KPIs may sometimes use the same metrics, but they have a different purpose.
«KPIs do not have targets, but there should be thresholds that trigger alerts. For instance, a sudden drop in the volume of leads should probably trigger a meeting to address that issue, and redirect resources if needed.»
Featured guest author: Erica Louie! Making a case for OKRs and the importance of Team KPIs.
OKRs and KPIs are popular goal-setting methods that help organizations set meaningful goals and execute effective strategies to reach them.
«OKRs are designed to be ambitious and encourage learning by reaching for super ambitious goals (even if you don’t meet them)»
In this Producttank Heidelberg, Jenny Herald, VP of Product Evangelism at Gtmhub shares her experiences with working with OKRs and explains the groundwork required to get started with these metrics.
Teams that sandbag their OKRs set easily achievable goals. Here’s why this stifles innovation and what you can do about it.
«This is a common anti-pattern with Objectives and Key Results. Teams, especially those not fully sold on the goal-setting framework, define success targets for themselves they know they can hit. This way work can continue, more or less, as usual and the discomfort of change or a new way of working can be avoided.»
How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets the most relevant links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, mark as read, read later, «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
How does Refind detect «timeless» pieces?
