What is an OKR
OKR is short for Objectives and Key Results. It is a popular goal management framework, which comes from companies. And Vision aims to bring OKRs to personal use.
An OKR consists of an Objective, which tells you where to go, and several Key Results, which are the results you need to achieve to get to your Objective. At Vision, we introduced another concept, Tasks, which are all the projects and tasks that will help you achieve your Key Results.
A Brief History of OKR and Vision
- In 1954, Peter Drucker invented MBO (Management by Objectives)
- In 1968, [Andrew Grove], then CEO and co-founder of Intel, developed MBO into the OKR framework as we know it today.
- In 1974, John Doerr joined Intel and learned OKR during his time here.
- John Doerr introduced OKR to Larray Page and Sergey Brin, the founders of Google, who then implemented OKR at Google (which still uses it today).
- In 2020, Peter, CEO of ApeUni, introduced OKR to his company.
- In October 2020, Kai, who was a Web developer at ApeUni, found that OKRs were valubale for personal use, which helped his transition to an iOS indie developer, and launched Vision 1.0 afterwards.
- In June 2021, Vision 2.0 was launched.
