What is the OKR Planning Template?
The OKR Planning template is a mix of six templates that together help you lead OKR Planning sessions. This template provides you with a framework that guides you and your team through the whole OKR planning process -- before, during, and after your OKR planning meeting.
The OKR planning template contains six frames:
Icebreaker for the whole team
Overview of OKR-setting goals and topics
List of questions and answers
Breakout group discussions
Action plan / next steps
Who is the OKR Planning Template for?
Meetings facilitators and Team Leads can use this OKR Planning template to prepare for and run OKR sessions with their teams. Meeting participants can also refer to this template pack to prep for an OKR planning meeting.
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:
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
How do you run an OKR planning meeting using this template pack?
You can use the OKR Planning template to help you organize your OKR Planning process from end-to-end, allowing you to define your team’s and company’s OKRs successfully. When you facilitate an OKR session, take into consideration how knowledgeable your audience is. Do they need more instructions? References? Do they have questions and concerns? As a meeting facilitator, try to be an active listener and tackle your team’s difficulties. Use Ice Breakers and Brainstorm sessions to invite everyone to engage and be involved throughout the process, allow discussions with Breakout rooms, and collect everyone’s actionable points for reaching the desired results.
V2MOM Salesforce Template
Works best for:
Meetings, Strategic Planning
Align goals and strategies across your organization with the Salesforce V2MOM Template. Bring everyone together towards the same goals.
Works best for:
The 7S Framework Template stands out as an essential tool for organizations aiming to comprehensively understand their internal dynamics. One of its key benefits is its ability to foster strategic alignment. By visually breaking down the interconnectedness of seven core elements - from strategy to staff - the template enables teams to ensure that their business strategies harmoniously align with their internal capabilities and culture. This alignment not only underscores potential areas of strength but also pinpoints avenues for growth and development, ensuring that an organization moves forward with clarity and cohesion.
Works best for:
Education, Ideation, Brainstorming
Brainstorming is such a big part of ideation. But not everyone does their best work out loud and on the spot, yelling out thoughts and building on others’ ideas. Brainwriting is a brilliant solution for them—creative thinkers who happen to be more introverted. This approach and template invites participants to reflect quietly and write out their ideas, and then pass them to someone else who will read the idea and add to it. So you’ll get creative ideas from everyone—not just the loudest few.
Business Plan Template
Works best for:
Strategy & Planning
The Business Plan Template not only streamlines the complex task of crafting a business plan but also enhances collaboration and creativity. Whether you're a seasoned entrepreneur or just starting, Miro's Business Plan Template offers a practical, comprehensive solution to turn your business ideas into actionable strategies.
Ansoff Matrix Template
Works best for:
Leadership, Operations, Strategic Planning
Keep growing. Keep scaling. Keep finding those new opportunities in new markets—and creative new ways to reach customers there. Sound like your approach? Then this template might be a great fit. An Ansoff Matrix (aka, a product or market expansion grid) is broken into four potential growth strategies: Market Penetration, Market Development, Product Development, and Diversification. When you go through each section with your team, you’ll get a clear view of your options going forward and the potential risks and rewards of each.
