What is an OKR?[edit | edit source]

Objectives and key results is a goal-setting framework for defining and tracking objectives and their outcomes. HGAPS uses this system to organize projects and initiatives.

Please Read this Wikipedia page on OKRs.[edit | edit source]

Step-by-step of the OKR system[edit | edit source]

  1. Form an objective
  2. Come up with 3-5 key results that will lead to completion of that objective
  3. Assign a goal percentage completion value to each key result from 0% -100%

A worked example of the OKR system[edit | edit source]

Objective: Starting an HGAPS chapter

Key Results

  • KR 1: Obtaining a faculty advisor (1)
  • KR 2: Become a recognized student organization on your campus (1)
  • KR 3: Recruit 50 members (.7)
  • KR 4: Elect officials and have effective and efficient executive meetings (.75)

KRs can also warrant their own sub-KRs depending on the scope of the project.

The goal is to have a 70% success rate. So, make goals that push you!
