The MBO (Managing By Objectives) methodology is a top-down structure where team leaders create goals and delegate responsibilities to team members, often tied to individual performance. OKRs, on the other hand, are a more collaborative structure where goals are set and progress is tracked as a team, promoting transparency and self-governance.

OKRs require less managerial involvement and allow for stronger, self-governing teams, while MBOs requires skilled managers but reduces the ability to create a strong and independent team.
