OKRs provide perfect opportunities to guide your product or experience to value. The thing with OKRs, though, is that they seem to be challenging to truly implement and use to your benefit. Where do we start? How do they relate to Product Goals? Is this the classic chicken-egg story when it comes to the Product Backlog (or ‘wish lists’) and OKRs? 

Jurgen Appelo (TedX speaker, thought leader, workshop king, and keynote speaker) joins Mastering Agility to take us through his thoughts about setting objectives and measuring their results. 

What you’ll discover in this show:

-        Creating habits help when implementing OKRs
-        These objectives are relevant on all levels
-        Continuous flow supports the achievement of goals
