Introducing Retrospectives: Why reporting is a crucial part of the OKR process
New Retrospectives feature in Tability

In the world of OKRs (that's Objectives and Key Results), there's a common cycle: you plan, work towards your goals, and then take a step back to reflect.

Reflection is a crucial part of the OKR process where you share your hard-earned progress. It's about getting your data ducks in a row, analyzing what it all means, and then making it look pretty and understandable. Most importantly, you need to communicate it to the right folks, which might mean sending emails or sharing links to documents. Creating great reports a bit of a chore, but it's how the magic happens.

The beauty of this process is the reflective part. At the end of every quarter, or before a new one, you should always run an OKR retrospective. In a retrospective, you're not only sharing your thoughts and dissecting the data, you're also thinking back like "what could we have done better?" You ask yourself if you're actually hitting your goals, what you've accomplished, and whether those goals are still the right ones. It's about taking a step back, looking at the big picture, and learning from your experiences.

With Tability all of this becomes a breeze — and even more so with our latest feature: Retrospectives.
