Influencing Business Strategy with OKRs

Mark Richards has worked with numerous enterprise customers across most industries in Australia and across the globe. A SAFe Fellow since 2017, Richards is also the author of the blog “The Art of SAFe” and working on a book of the same name.

In this episode, Richards poses the question: How do we raise intentionality and reclaim control through our objectives? He discusses the process of setting Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) and how they can have a positive influence on business strategy by encouraging reflection and learning.

Mark recommends the following reads on getting started with OKRs:

  • Radical Focus by Christina Wodtke
  • Measure What Matters by Doerr
