1-Day Workshop with Tim Herbig & Sonja Mewes - April 24th, 2019
Building products by using agile principles is an effective way to grow a business. There’s no shortage of frameworks helping us to structure our development processes this way. But all too often, we tend to focus on merely producing more output (aka features) more quickly without considering the actual impact our products need to have in our user’s behavior. Yet we know that clarifying the higher reasoning behind our efforts is one of the most powerful ways to ensure that we build what truly matters.
Therefore, we need an agile goal setting system like Objectives and Key Results (OKR) which not only helps product teams to focus on outcome over output but which also enables true autonomy for them to build the best solutions. Join us for a practical one day workshop experience to learn…
We believe in the individuality of the ‘right’ OKR setup and agile processes. Therefore, we will not only dedicate plenty of time for practical exercises but also for answering questions resulting from your unique situation.
Input and exercises include:
