#DL Summit Workshop: Using Practical Product OKRs for Measuring Strategic Progress
16. Oktober 2023We are pleased to announce that Tim Herbig, our valued product management coach, will conduct another workshop this year. Tim’s workshops consistently receive great reviews and provide significant value to attendees while addressing extremely relevant topics.
Have a peek at what he has in store on November 7th:
Unlock the full potential of Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) as a dynamic tool to improve alignment and focus within your Product Reams. Tim’s workshop goes beyond the generic and general guidance available online. It will address pragmatic and highly effective strategies for creating and implementing OKRs that truly empower Product Teams. Join him for a hands-on exploration of OKRs like you have never experienced before.
About the Workshop
Date & Location: 7th of November 2023, 9 am to 5 pm — STARTPLATZ, Cologne
Trainer: Tim Herbig
This workshop is part of our Pre-Conference Workshop Day for Digitale Leute Summit 2023.
Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) can be a powerful tool for aligning Product Teams and helping them focus. But when the dogma of by-the-book definitions and process overhead get in the way, they become a necessary evil instead of an amplifier. Product Teams should focus on the usefulness of OKR Sets and integration with existing practices instead of correctness at all costs.
After the workshop you will be able to…
Go from Product Strategy to quarterly OKRs
Recognize Key Outcomes vs Outputs and Lagging vs Leading Key Results patterns when drafting OKRs and how to course-correct
Make sure your Product Roadmap complements your OKRs, instead of replacing them
Draft and measure useful OKRs for different types of Product Teams: Whether it’s a high-traffic b2c or internal-facing product
Integrate OKRs into the everyday decision-making of Product Discovery and Product Delivery
And most of all, ensure that OKRs are actionable and valuable, not just on paper
Who should attend
This workshop is relevant to individuals whether you already use OKRs in your company or are in the planning stages of adopting them.
(Senior) Product Managers who want to stop copying & pasting backlog items and tasks into OKR tools and Excel spreadsheets for a “reporting meeting” with stakeholders and management
Heads of Product and VPs of Product who want to make OKRs a helpful vehicle for communicating priorities and measuring progress for the teams in their area
Product Operations Managers, OKR Experts, Scrum Masters, and Agile Coaches who want to support Product Teams with the adoption of OKRs
UX and Engineering Product Team members who want to improve their capability to participate and influence goal-setting in their company
