Being productive using OKRs

img Yosefine BukitVista | September 13, 2023

OKRs is our effort of making sure everyone knows what’s expected of them at work. OKRs are supposed to be public so that everyone moves towards the same goals and are aware of what others are working on.

OKRs consist of a list of 3-5 high level Objectives. Under each Objective there should be 3-5 measurable Key Results. Each Key Result can be measured on a score of 0-100%.

OKRs should also be updated daily and revised on the 2nd of every month


Should be ambitious, qualitative, time bound and actionable by the person or team.

Key results

  • quantifiable, achievable, lead to objective grading
  • be difficult, but not impossible
  • can be based on growth, performance, or engagement
  • often they are numerical, but they can also show if something is done or undone

Once defined, communicate your Objectives and Key Results to everyone. If needed, tune the wording together so everyone has a common understanding.

When it’s considered done?

An objective is considered done when 70-75% of its results have been achieved. If 100% of objectives results get done, it may not be ambitious enough.

  • Review OKRs regularly, as needed. Be flexible. If your company, team, or personal goals change, feel free to change the OKRs as well.

What is the difference between KPI and OKR?

KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators) – Are a set of statements that prove whether a given project is successful or not. KPI’s are mostly used for a specific project and each project will have their own KPI’s

Meanwhile OKR’s are used to make sure that the actions being taken within a time frame by an individual, eventually lead Bukit Vista towards it’s goal of being the most innovative hospitality company.

OKR’s are a personal set of goals for a certain time period while KPI’s are project goals.
