Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) – invented at Intel, made famous by Google, and currently a key strategic tool at companies such as DropBox, Oracle, LinkedIn, Slack, Spotify and Twitter. Objectives describe “What” is to be achieved and “Why”, with Key Results filling in the “How”.

  • Upon completion, participants will be able to improve the synthesis of Benefits and Outcomes in their Epics and Features using OKRs
  • Upon completion, participants will understand how to use OKRs to take SMART to the next level
