The key points at OKR are:
Shorter time horizon: Agile targets with a shorter time horizon allow the reaction to external influences. It is possible to make adjustments after each cycle.
Simplicity: OKR are very simple in structure. In this way, companies invest their resources in achieving their goals and not in setting them.
Transparency: The main purpose of OKR is to create an orientation in the organization. For this purpose, OKR are publicly accessible at all company levels.
Rhythm: OKR work with different rhythms according to the requirements:
Annual focus on large strategic projects
Quarterly focus on tactical implementation
Weekly review of the current status
Motivation: The establishment of the OKR is a mixture of bottom-up and top-down. The teams have a lot of self-determination and therefore greater motivation to work on it.
Ambition: The goals are set so ambitiously that they carry you out of the comfort zone without overwhelming you. This is how common growth can arise.
No bonus: there is no connection to financial incentives. This is the only way to create a sustainable basis for growth.
