Modern Leadership with OKRs and Evidence-based Management (EBM)

January 25 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Improving outcomes through strategic alignment, autonomy, and empiricism

With markets and customer needs constantly changing, organizations need a new operating system that helps them adapt quickly to new challenges and opportunities. Even organizations using Agile product development techniques are still constrained by their overall approach to management. Objectives and key results (OKRs) are a popular management system designed to help organizations achieve strategic alignment, and evidence, and empowerment-based management at scale.

In the Modern Leadership with OKRs workshop, participants learn about the key principles and practices of OKRs and Evidence-based Management (EBM) and how to apply them effectively:

  • Build an evidence-guided organization by learning what/how to measure in your organization leveraging the EBM Key Value Areas (Unrealized Value, Current Value, Time to Market, and the Ability to Innovate) to figure out your KPIs.
  • How to use OKRs to deploy a strategy, managing the unknown and complexity through experimentation and adapting goals along the way.
  • How to nurture the right culture for OKRs – using clear goals, appropriate measures, and trust to enable self-management and autonomy.
  • Shift the OKR conversation away from measuring activity toward focusing on customer and business outcomes.
  • Common OKR anti-patterns and how to avoid them and the key ingredients for successfully implementing OKRs
  • How to apply OKRs in different contexts
  • Integrating OKRs into your ecosystem

Participation includes a private implementation strategy/application coaching session to help you get started applying modern leadership with OKRs and EBM in your organization.

Who is this workshop for
