Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) are a worldwide phenomenon, helping to drive the success of organizations like Google, Zynga, Oracle, Twitter, and many more. They are particularly suited to driving the alignment necessary for a high-performing cross-functional product team. But if not handled correctly, OKRs can quickly lead to silos, unethical behavior, and demotivation.

How do the best-performing product cultures use OKRs? Topics we will cover:
- How to set annual OKRs and break them down quarterly
- How to determine the right level of ambition for your organization
- How OKRs drive your product roadmap (and vice versa)
- How to map OKRs to people and teams
- How to make OKRs visible across your organization
- How to monitor and report on OKRs
- How to adjust OKRs when things don’t go as planned
- How to get buy-in on OKRs from your stakeholders

We’ll cover the most common what-if scenarios teams experience (or fear):
- What if we can’t measure the most important things?
- What if we miss our targets?
- What if our direction changes mid-year?

And we’ll talk about the pitfalls with OKRs and how to avoid them:
- How to avoid OKRs becoming “shelfware”
How to prevent gaming and unethical behavior
