OKR Ambassador

Role of the OKR Ambassador

Organizations are made up from departments and teams that ideally work closely together on common goals and objectives. The OKR Ambassador is usually a team or department member and has very good knowledge of the actual work that is being done by the team or department. He/her role as an OKR Ambassador is to be the linking pin between his/her own team/department and other parts of the organization regarding OKR-related matters. They ensure that there is alignment between the OKRs of the different teams/departments and that the OKRs of their own team/department are connected to the overall objectives and strategy of the organization. They safeguard the periodic check-in process and serve as a first point of contact for team/department members.

The OKR Champion and the OKR Ambassador are OKR Subject Matter Experts for the other members of the team or department. But the role of OKR Ambassador is much more hands-on than the role of a Champion, as the Ambassador provides support to the team/department in the context of the daily work of direct colleagues.
