How to use the OKR Planning Template:

The OKR Planning template is a framework containing six templates so you can lead a planning session smoothly and efficiently. Follow the steps below to run an OKR Planning meeting using this template:

  1. Icebreaker for the whole team: get the creative juices flowing and begin the session with an Icebreaker. On this template, the Love Bomb Icebreaker can make your team feel connected and appreciative of the strengths of one another.

  2. Goals and topics: at this stage, outline the meeting’s agenda and present any relevant information that you think you and your team will need for the session (for example, the company’s metrics, statistics, or an inspirational quote).

  3. Questions and answers: after the OKR session’s brief introduction, allow the participants to ask questions and raise concerns. Be an active listener and understand your team’s worries, as this will be very important for the rest of the session to run smoothly.

  4. Brainstorming session: here is where the fun begins! Brainstorm with your team what areas you should focus on for the next period. Use the voting feature and allow everyone to have an active voice and engage in the discussion.

  5. Co-create OKRs in breakout rooms: at this point, create breakout rooms and allow your team to discuss the topics from the brainstorm. After the discussion, they can come up with some possible key results and actionable points on reaching the company’s objectives.

  6. Next steps and OKR planning: define the objectives set by each group and clearly describe the risks and actions needed to achieve them.

And lastly, before celebrating the end of your OKR planning process, as a good practice for meeting facilitators, schedule a follow-up session to ensure everyone is aligned.

Miro’s infinite online whiteboard helps you keep everything you need in one shared space, making it easy for you and your team to follow up and consult the OKR documentation even after your OKR planning meeting.

Breakout Group Template

Breakout groups provide an excellent opportunity for teammates to have candid conversations and connect on a more intimate level than is possible during a broader meeting. When you’re in a large group setting, it can be difficult for people to feel safe or comfortable speaking up. In a smaller group, participants can feel safer sharing their ideas. Since the group is more intimate, teams are empowered to participate rather than observe.
