What are Outcomes? 

These are referred to Key Results, these are typically measurable and are directly linked with metrics. The question to ask is, “how I'm going to get it done.” 

What are tasks? 

These are steps or projects to deliver the outcome, think, 'What can help me achieve this outcome?'. With tasks, you have the ability to assign an individual as the lead or owner, add a due date and add a description on the task to provide more context.
