The OKR Champion defines a repeatable process for collecting, sharing, and leveraging OKRs and tracking progress against success criteria.

Ensures Alignment Across the Enterprise

The OKR Champion ensures that all objectives and key results are linked to the overall corporate strategy. Remember - OKR is as much about saying 'No' as it is about saying 'Yes'.

Celebrates Success!

Everybody needs to know how their efforts contribute to the Big Vision. By keeping OKRs transparent across the enterprise and actively looking for success stories, the OKR Champion can socialize victories and reward superior performance.

Remember, nothing drives success like success!
