About the session

OKRs promise focus, alignment, accountability, and commitment.

These promises might fill the hearts of many managers with joy. They hear about the idealised stories of how OKRs helped organisations to become successful and want to have a piece of this cake, too. But most of the time they're not aware of what it takes to enable an environment for OKRs to work well.

If you want to apply OKR to become more focused but keep changing your playfield every 2 months, OKR is not the remedy you’re looking for. For OKRs to work well, organisations need to be prepared to undergo some serious changes.

In this talk I'll uncover some of the misconceptions such as Vertical vs. Horizontal Alignment, Score vs. Conversation, Outcome vs. Output.

Participant takeaways:

  • I’ll also offer some practical advice on how to avoid or fix these common mistakes.

Themes: OKR, Leadership, Organisation, Metrics
