OKR means: Objective and Key Results. The idea was developed by Andy Grove, a manager of Intel in the 70s (or 80s).

Objectives : The ambition of a company, division, or individual. They are stated as the end-goal within a given time frame. They should be developed in a way that makes it clear whether the objective has been met or no.

Key Results : These are the steps that allow to reach the objectives. They must be stated in a way that is measurable. For example: Reaching X users before Y date . If all the key results are obtained, the Objective must be accomplished.
