OKRs and Agile Sitting on a Tree…
Struggling to create a healthy synergy between OKRs and Agile/Scrum/SAFe? You’re not alone. In this session, we provide a high-level overview of OKRs, identify some common OKR usage issues/anti-patterns, and suggest improvements leveraging Lean/Agile principles and practices. You will learn how to organize around value through an OKR lens. We will understand the connection between OKRs, KPIs, Products / Value Streams, and what that means for leveraging OKRs in the different Scrum/SAFe elements. We will discuss how Evidence-based Management (EBM) can amp up OKR empiricism. By the end of this session, you will understand the relationship between OKRs, Agile, Scrum, SAFe, and EBM and have concrete ideas for how to help your organization leverage them in synergy.
