Business idea: OKRandMe – Reminder Sent Every Morning.
OKR (Objective and Key Results) is a framework for goal setting and has been popular among tech startups and many others. With OKR, you can cascade company goals into departments, teams, and eventually, individuals. As a result, everyone has a clear vision to contribute.
In theory, OKR is great. But especially at big companies, employees often have a hard time remembering and relating themselves to OKRs. On the other hand, managers don’t have time to remind their people about OKRs every day. So – why not automate this?
OKRandMe reminds where you are in terms of progress, why OKRs are set in what context, how others are doing, and a quick message from the CEO. In this way, each employee can see the big picture while focusing on their day-to-day tasks.
It also encourages employees to collaborate and hit team OKRs. Since all employees can see the progress on OKRandMe, it becomes easier to identify blockers and work towards the issue together. As a result, communication in the company improves dramatically.
If OKR is used effectively, company productivity and morale could skyrocket. OKRandMe is the tool to make sure the framework is properly introduced at any company.
