We are a group of seasoned entrepreneurs and business leaders who have spent the last two decades building businesses of all sizes – from scrappy startups to large public companies.
One thing we all had in common was our collective experiences implementing and managing OKRs in our respective organizations. Over the course of our careers, we have dealt with OKRs on a variety of mediums – documents, spreadsheets, whiteboards, and even fancy expensive software.
Over time, their drawbacks became more and more apparent, often doing more harm than good. If they were simple and easy to implement, they would lack the features necessary to make teams more efficient and productive with OKRs. If they had all the features necessary to make teams successful, they would be too complicated to use and expensive to maintain.
So rather than stick to the status quo, we decided to build a new platform from scratch, and SugarOKR was born.
We have always believed in how powerful the OKR framework can be for organizations when done right. Through SugarOKR, we hope to enable businesses to succeed and win with OKRs, while keeping everyone motivated and happy.
At SugarOKR, our shared values guide how we work together as a team on a daily basis.
We are headquartered in sunny Singapore – the technology
hub of Asia. We also have remote teams working across 7
different countries including the US, UK and ANZ.
“SugarOKR is more than an awesome OKR management platform. It has rallied our
teams together by creating a level of
accountability & transparency previously thought impossible.”
Sharon Paul, Head of Payments, S.E.A at Xfers
People these days tend to have a love-hate relationship with OKRs. They see how it can be beneficial to their organisation, yet few actually know how to implement OKRs correctly….
In this article, we will examine why startups worldwide have been increasingly adopting startup okrs (Objectives and Key Results) to keep employees extra motivated, focused, and productive; especially in this challenging COVID environment.
Daily standups & weekly roundups form the lifeblood of the company – keeping everyone’s fingers on the pulse of things, and staying on course.
