With 10 objectives and 55 key results, the Speed & Scale plan shows how we can get to net-zero emissions by 2050—and halfway there by 2030.
OKRs stand for Objectives and Key Results. They address the critical facets of any goal worth achieving: the “what” and the “how.” Objectives are what you aim to accomplish. Key Results (KRs) tell us how we’ll get the objectives done.
A well-formed objective is significant, action-oriented, durable, and inspirational. Each objective is supported by carefully chosen and crafted key results. Strong key results are specific, timebound, aggressive (yet realistic) and most of all, measurable and verifiable.
OKRs aren’t the sum of all tasks. They focus on what’s most important, the handful of essential action steps for a given pursuit. They enable us to track our progress as we go.
