In Semen Arslan’s AOTB 2019 talk she looks at OKR (Objective and Key Results) and how the framework can be used to set goals that connects Agile product management practices with organisations performance metrics. It has started to be used by companies such as Google, Oracle, Twitter, LinkedIn and Dropbox and currently OKRs are being applied worldwide from startups to large organisations. Defining “moonshot” is very important for a company to be one of the best companies on social innovation and digital transformation. OKRs are very powerful to bring forth this “moonshot” thanks to its core concepts: shorter cadence, alignment, transparency, focus and simplicity. Therefore, by using OKRs, we can set our direction to amplify motivation and unlock the ultimate human potential and grow the ground-breaking products.
