About the session

Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) are a simple-sounding idea: Help people see what a team’s aiming for and why it matters. Used well, they bring clarity and focus, enabling good decisions and suggestions.

In practice, there are all kinds of troubles people get bogged down in. This session will cover the essence of what OKRs are good for, the ways to keep them simple and useful, and the pitfalls you can avoid if you know to watch out for them.

This session will attempt to cover 10 different things you haven’t heard before - but if it manages only 7, that’ll still be a great outcome. Yes, that was an OKR joke.

Participant takeaways:

  • A collection of key details and decisions to work through when applying OKRs, to help get the most out of them
  • An idea of pitfalls and antipatterns, and how to avoid these
  • Confidence to start using OKRs more effectively when they get back to work.

Themes:
Organisation, Leadership, Culture
