About Timeframes and Frequencies

OKRs typically work with a combination of frequencies that interact with each other to create a rhythm of continuous and focused progress. You have a high-level goal with a longer horizon (Company OKRs), that can only be accomplished by working toward smaller goals with a shorter horizon (Circle OKRs).

To make it simple:

  • A timeframe is the overall duration of an OKR, built from a series of recurring frequencies.

  • A frequency is a single date range used to set the time in which the goal should be achieved.

  • A start date is the date on which the frequency takes effect.

Tip: Keep timeframes consistent across your organization to ensure all circles are coordinated and aligned. Start simple and grow as you learn!
