Objectives are good stretch goals describing outcomes desired.
Key results are clear metrics that indicate progress towards objectives.
OKRS are reformatted statements of activity or milestones in a project.
Metrics do not relate to the achievement of the objective or are binary.
Bad objectives constrain and limit, don’t inspire, and don’t deliver the benefits.
Bad key results mean it is not possible to determine if you are achieving the objective.
