Company OKRs are usually annual and sit right below either your Ultimate Goal or, if enabled, your Strategic Pillars.
With your strategy (Ultimate Goal and Strategic Pillars) set up in Perdoo, it's then time to add your Company OKRs. We'd recommend picking the 3-5 core themes for your organization this year.
Only Superadmins can add, edit, and update Company Objectives.
When formulating your Company Objectives:
Be sure they can be influenced by most of the organization
Use inspirational language
Make them relatable/understandable

The Objective creation modal will open.

Add a thorough description to make it easier to understand.
Verify the Company is marked as the Owner
Select the CEO or an Executive as the Lead
Confirm that the selected Timeframe is the correct one
Pick the Strategic Pillar that this Objective supports (if enabled)

Add Key Results
OKR consists of an Objective, which defines the goal to be achieved, and Key Results, which measure progress towards the Objective. Adding Key Results to your company OKRs will help you remove ambiguity and specify what success really means to you.

Quantify the Objective
Challenging, but not impossible
* NOTE: It can sometimes be difficult to define a Key Result for a Company Objective. If that's the case, you could choose to measure progress on the Company Objective based on its aligned Objectives.
