Event description
OKR can only enhance existing Agile ways of working if they focus on Outcomes and are integrated into the daily business of teams.

About this Event

Building products by using agile principles is an effective way to grow a business.

There’s no shortage of frameworks helping us to structure our development processes this way. But all too often, we tend to focus on merely producing more output (aka features) more quickly without considering the actual impact our products need to have in our user’s behavior. Yet we know that clarifying the higher reasoning behind our efforts is one of the most powerful ways to ensure that we build what truly matters.

Therefore, we need an agile goal setting system like Objectives and Key Results (OKR) which not only helps product teams to focus on outcome over output but which also enables true autonomy for them to build the best solutions.

Join us for a practical one day workshop experience to learn

  • why thinking in impacts can drastically change your perspective on product development.
  • what effective OKR are made of and how to use them for setting your team up for working on outcomes instead of features.
  • how to set up your agile product development processes to support thinking and working in outcomes tomorrow.
  • how to incorporate OKR into your agile product processes throughout all levels.

We believe in the individuality of the ‘right’ OKR setup and agile processes. Therefore, we will not only dedicate plenty of time for practical exercises but also for answering questions resulting from your unique situation.

Input and exercises include:

  • Learning about proven tactics from our own first-hand experiences
  • The concept of OKR as a learning system with a unique setup per company
  • Comparing OKR sets with and without outcome-orientation
  • Apply methods how to adjust your own OKR towards higher reasons instead of misusing it for task management
  • Understanding the concept of theme-based roadmaps and how to combine quarterly goal setting with continuous Product Discovery
  • Work through the process of combining OKR with agile routines and processes like roadmap and sprint plannings.
  • Group exercise: Design the individual processes together with other attendees.

This workshop is for:

  • Product Managers, Scrum Masters or Agile Coaches who need to solve challenges between OKR and product processes after a company wide OKR implementation
  • Executives who are looking to align the product organization with overall strategic company goals

Methods:

  • Case Studies
  • Design Thinking
  • Group exercises
  • Team Retrospectives

What do participants receive?

  • Course slides
  • Industry best practices
  • Free templates to improve your own OKR processes
  • Draft for your individual combined process
  • Confirmation of participation
