OKRify for Nonprofits
OKR (Objective and Key Results) methodology has been adopted successfully across many for-profit organizations for more than two decades, and recently nonprofits are also starting to adopt this goal setting and strategy execution framework.
OKR is a simple, intuitive and agile methodology that can benefit nonprofits to achieve their desired outcomes better and faster. OKRs create alignment within the organization, putting everyone on the same path while providing a framework for tracking progress.
OKR framework can benefit nonprofits evenmore as they face many unique challenges such as keeping focus on the mission, measuring success clearly, working with volunteers, engaging external funding or government agencies.
OKR framework can help non-profit organizations with
- Keep focus on key strategic mission
- Clearly communicating strategy to everyone involved in the organization
- Setting expectations for employees and volunteers
- Building a culture of accountability and transparency
- Providing clear view of employee’s and volunteer’s contributions towards the strategic mission
- Encourage to be ambitious and set stretch goals
Adopting the OKR framework can be challenging for nonprofits as OKR demands a shift in focus to outcomes. OKR is about measuring success based on outcome based metrics rather than just measuring the progress with the number of activities or steps completed.
This change can be challenging but it can also help nonprofits focus on the outcomes they create, align everyone towards their mission and measure success when there are not clear metrics to measure their success. The benefits of OKR framework provides far outweigh the challenges in its adoption.
It is important to follow the best practices when adopting the OKR framework to get the best out of this great tool. One of the key best practices is to choose a software application that is simple, easy to use and makes OKR adoption easier for everyone involved.
