Defining objectives and key results is just the beginning of your OKR journey. Without follow up and follow through, the whole exercise will be a loss of time, effort and energy.
To ensure that teams are focused and driving objectives forward, it is important to have a regular, usually weekly, follow up meeting where progress, priorities, obstacles and small victories are discussed.
This meeting is normally referred to as a ‘Check-in’ or "Retrospective Meetings". They should be regular and short, straight to the point and useful.
In the Gtmhub platform there're two ways of updating your KRs:
- from the Objectives list and
- from My progress page
Let's look at both of them in a bit more detail.
Update key results from Objectives list
To update the progress of a key result you need to first access the objective.
Navigate to the OKRs section and choose the active OKR session from the drop down menu where your OKRs live.
Use the Filter by assignee option to filter the objectives list.
From the dialog window choose My Objectives as this will narrow the OKRs list and you'll be able to see only objectives assigned to you.
Choose the KR you'd like to update and click on it. A dialogue box'll open so you can update its progress.
To save the changes click on the Check-in button.
Updating key results from My Progress
My progress is the place that has information about all OKRs assigned to you or your team.
To check-in your KRs progress from the My Progress screen, navigate to OKRs > My Progress.
You'll get a list with all OKRs that need your attention and at the bottom of the list you'll find all of your OKRs.
If you'd like to save some of your precious time, you can bulk update OKRs at once. Learn how from this article on Bulk Check-ins.
