Solid, solid, solid summary of how to tactically combine OKRs with a “North Star” … whether you’re new to OKRs or just need a quick — and very practical — reinforcement of the principles, this is absolutely worth your time!

    Thanks Aaron. A lot of people ask about OKRs and North Star Metrics. Are they compatible? When should we develop these processes? Who should lead the charge? I wanted to share insights that could be practically applied in organizations large and small, and try to make it a little less daunting along the way. If anyone has questions, post them here and I will try to reply promptly.

      Not surprisingly I've long been a big believer in the power of a North Star Metric. But with this article, you helped me understand how OKRs and a North Star Metric are not mutually exclusive and can be effectively woven together to help a time focus on the highest impact growth initiatives. And I love how you took a practical approach to implementing both and shared your real-world experience with many of the potential pitfalls.

        Thanks Sean. There are so many moving parts when it comes to growth, and I think OKRs and a North Star Metric are two concepts that can help teams bring order to some of the chaos. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to understand how and when to use these tools, and how to make them impactful within your organization. I was hoping to shed some light on those areas. I am glad you found the insights practical, and I am grateful for all that you have shared in helping to make the NSM an actionable tool for growth.

    Excellent article by Ethan Garr. When I presented at the GH Conference, this was one of the key questions that came up during Q&A.
