Checking in around your OKR confidence level is a key part of measuring your OKR progress. The OKR Confidence Scoring Template will help you capture and score your team's Key Result confidence scores and adjust course throughout the quarter as needed.

What is an OKR Confidence and how does the template help?

Confidence scoring helps you and your team discuss your level of certainty that you will achieve your key results by the end of the quarter. By placing a number on your level of confidence, it allows you to think through how you might adjust your pathway forward to raise that confidence level. It's a data point that will help you and your team align on next steps, problem solve potential barriers and pivot if needed. By checking in regularly on OKR confidence levels, you can get ahead and adjust, before it’s too late.

How to get started with the OKR Confidence level template?

We recommend using the OKR Confidence Level Template at your weekly OKR check-ins. Reviewing your confidence level with your team will be a chance to understand everyone's perspective, and share ideas to overcome any barriers. The Template will be a guide to help you track your progress throughout the quarter.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I build confidence in my team's ability to achieve OKRs?

We always recommend starting your OKR journey with a pilot 6 week OKR cycle. By starting small, we can bring everyone on board to learn the OKR process. Throughout this process it is important to celebrate the wins we have along the way to build confidence amongst the team. 

What are some common challenges that may affect OKR confidence, and how can they be overcome?

We all hit roadblocks in our planning. Unexpected new priorities come up, technology fails us, or resources disappear. When these things happen, it’s important we discuss with our teams how we can readjust and overcome these barriers.

Through harnessing the power of the collective wisdom of your team, discussing how you can raise your confidence will help chart a pathway forward, together. Perhaps you find ways to reprioritize, seek new opportunities or collaborate with other team members.

What steps can leaders take to foster a culture of OKR confidence among their teams?

As a leader you can create time and space for your team to have open discussions about your OKR confidence score. Holding steady to a set meeting time where OKR confidence in the agenda is the first step. In these meetings, create an environment where your team can feel safe to share their thoughts and ideas, feel empowered to help each other out and chart a pathway forward.

What role does communication play in enhancing OKR confidence within an organization?

Communication is key! By following the OKR Confidence TEmplate and using it with your team, you are creating the space for open conversation about whats working, what’s not working and how to adjust course. Having regular Check-Ins where confidence scoring is discussed paves the way for communication to become a part of your team way of working.
