101 Guide: Pillars and OKRs

Pillars and OKRs (objectives and key results) are the cornerstone elements of your nonprofit's strategic plan.

Pillars define key areas of focus for your plan. Objectives and key results establish the most important things you'll do to pursue those pillars and advance your mission over the next three years, and define how you'll measure your progress. Learn how to develop these important elements with this tool.

You'll learn:

  • How to define pillars (aka priorities) for your strategic plan 

  • How to set objectives that get at the most important things you need to do to move your pillars and mission forward

  • How to set a mix of output and outcome-oriented key results that make it clear where your nonprofit is making progress, and reveal where you need to adjust

  • How to build a dashboard for tracking your OKRs

  • How to meaningfully involve your program participants, board, community and other stakeholders in pillar and OKR development
