What is the best OKR software for a startup to use?

We've been running for about 18 months, we've established problem market fit and are now looking to scale things up. I'm in the process of shifting over to the OKR (Objectives and Key Results) methodology. I'd love to hear any recommendations for a SaaS product that helps companies manage, track and collaborate around their quarterly OKR's. I've looked at products like Lattice and Perdoo, but they are much more tailored for Enterprise style setups (and budgets!). Any recommendations would be hugely apprecited.

    The project management tool that grows with you

    You may find Zenkit helpful. It´s a SaaS for project management but because of its flexibility, you can create with it everything you need to manage your business. Kanban, Table, Calendar, List or Mind Map - switch easily between the views. To collaborate with your team is also easy because you can assign tasks, communicate via mentioning and get notifications. There is a lot more to do with it but maybe it´s better to have a look at it on your own.

    We've been using 15Five recently. It's easy to use and has a strong mobile app that makes life easy!
    I really love 15Five both for OKR tracking as well as for employee recognition.
  5. I prefer to keep OKRs in place where our employees spend most of work time. For example, in our organization we use Jira and manage OKRs inside Jira with special plugin called OKR Board for Jira. We created if for our internal usage and now it’s available for everyone in Atlassian Marketplace. - It’s easy to use - You can link Jira epics or issues to auto-track progress of OKRs - All your team is already in Jira - so you do not need to import/sync users - Affordable price https://marketplace.atlassian.co...

    OKR is a goal setting framework which is used to describe goals and measure progress before a due date.

    We are a Lean Startup so when we tried to implement the OKR's at our company We started in very MVP mode. We started with a Sheet of Google Drive and commenting results in feedback's meeting with the document. At that moment the OKR Methodology didn't work
    If you're a startup and implementing OKRs for the first time, it may be wise to keep things simple at first. Before you invest in technology that automates the process for you, stay close to the ground and keep everything pretty low-tech for a time. This will help you get a feel for how it actually works, so that by the time you streamline everything you will already intimately understand the process.
  10. ZOKRI is OKR software with a huge user base of startups, scale-ups and non tech customers as well. There is a free plan and there is a special deal for start-ups you can contact ZOKRI about which almost gives the platform away.

    There are a lot of solutions out there, but I think you need to focus on flexibility and innovation - most established companies find this difficult, so I would look to the new players emerging. ZOKRI are serious about bringing AI into the arena, and well worth a look

  16. I think it depends on how you need to pull out your data. If you need a product that retrieves data from a database or spreadsheet, then I'd recommend a good self service BI solution. I'm the founder of Lumalaytics, a self service BI SAAS product. There are others I'd also recommend like ModeAnalytics and PeriscopeData.
  17. I think Workteam could be a good fit. See http://workte.am/workteam-okr-go.... One of the potential pitfalls when implementing an OKR solution is that your employees adopt a “set and forget” mentality where they set their goals and then forget all about them until the end of the quarter. Workteam uses a weekly check-in feature to encourage employees to continually update the status of their goals throughout the quarter. It has some good reporting tools to give insights of progress of all the goals that align with the company objectives. Workteam also provides an optional work management feature for further breaking down goals into actionable tasks, which can encourage greater collaboration and awareness around the progress of goals.
