At Gtmhub, we think of OKRs as a pyramid with three main components.
Each individual OKR is defined through three following things:
Example: Improve sales process
What is it that I want to achieve. Should be qualitative, yet measurable. OKR has only 1 objective (and it should not contain words such as "and" or "or")
Example: Shorten life cycle to 42 days
How will I measure my achievement? Should be quantitative. OKR should have 3-5 key results in order to fully capture the intention of the objective.
Example: Prepare sales one-pager
What will I do about achieving my objectives? This is typical tasks. Usually have states such as "to do", "in progress" and "done". There may be as many tasks as necessary to achieve the objective.
How to create tasks in Gtmhub?
You can easily create an attach tasks to objectives in Gtmhub when you are creating or editing an objective.
To create a task for an Objective:
- Navigate to OKRs section
- Create a new objective or edit an existing one
- Scroll down to the Tasks section
- Click on the Add a task button
- Enter title and description of the task and click on the Add task button
Gtmhub will automatically count the number of tasks, as well as the number of completed tasks. As you keep working on tasks, you can easily mark them as being in progress or being completed.
Gtmhub also provides a direct integration with JIRA. In that scenario you can define your tasks in JIRA and assign them to your OKRs. It is also possible to mix Gtmhub tasks with JIRA tasks.
You can install a free JIRA plugin from Atlassian Marketplace for Jira Cloud.
