OKR scoring is secondary to retrospective

If a bunch of leaders get together for an OKR scoring session and spend the whole time talking about the scores, that’s a crying shame. The scores aren’t the point. Whether an OKR gets a 0.6 or a 0.8 doesn’t matter. It’s not going on anyone’s report card or permanent record.

But why did it get that score? What could have changed to make it a higher score? What did we learn? How can we grow from that? That’s the good stuff.

Scores a vehicle for growth discussions. So spend the time on those discussions, not on the scores themselves.
