Goal Crushing: Use OKRs to achieve business results


  • It is helpful to have an understanding of the organizational structure of your company and what strategic objectives you want to achieve.


Setting strong, metric-driven goals for yourself and your organization can be tough, but it’s also incredibly important. In this course, you will learn how to crush your goals by using the Objectives and Key Results (OKR) framework. This simple method for goal setting is used by many successful companies across the globe, including Google, GE, and Udemy, because they are an excellent method for communicating what each team is working on and how they’re measuring their results with the rest of the organization. The framework requires people to write metric-driven results that demonstrate they have achieved their objective. OKRs are also easily cascaded within an organization, so that everyone’s goals align.

This course is led by Shelley Osborne, Head of Learning & Development at Udemy. It is designed for people at all levels, from individual contributors to managers, who want to write strong goals for themselves and their team, and cascade goals within their organization.
