How To Create A KRA (Key Results Area)

If you have not done it yet you need to create KRA’s for your team.
Some time ago the software developers on my team kept asking me things like “am I doing a good job”, “am I doing the right things”, “what do you want me to differently”, etc… My initial reaction was surprise. I thought they should know exactly how well they were doing. On further reflection I realized it was me who had not been clear. I had a well defined sense of job responsibilities in my head but had never stated them explicitly.
I sat down over a weekend and boiled down each team member’s role into 3-4 very specific key activities then created bullet point descriptions for each of these 3-4 areas. (If I remember right I may have even used the KRA samples from this site)
This has made all the difference in the world. It is so worth the time. Clear expectations make for a much better work experience for your direct reports. It removes doubt about what they should be doing and frees their minds to actually focus on work.
Additionally, Writing out KRA’s made me a better manager. By taking the time to really think through what I expect from my team I realized I actually had a number of gaps in understanding my own expectations! Verbalizing these expectations by writing them in clear/concise language forced me to really think through what I wanted from my them.
