Objectives and Key Results (OKR)

OKRs are a worldwide phenomenon, helping to drive the success of organizations like Google, Zynga, Oracle, Twitter, and many more. They are particularly suited to driving the alignment necessary for a high-performing cross-functional product team. But if not handled correctly, OKRs can quickly lead to silos, unethical behavior, and demotivate. How do the best-performing product cultures use OKRs? Topics we cover:

  • How to define effective OKRs

  • The most common what-if scenarios teams experience (or fear)

  • The pitfalls with OKRs and how to avoid them

  • Set OKRs for your team and get live feedback you can leverage when you get back to the office

Product Roadmaps Relaunched

How to Set Direction while Embracing Uncertainty

A good product roadmap is one of the most important documents an organization can develop, publish, and continuously update. Product Roadmaps Relaunched: How to Set Direction While Embracing Uncertainty teaches you how to create an effective product roadmap, and demonstrates how to use the roadmap to align stakeholders and prioritize ideas and requests. 

Steve Blank said about the book, “It’s about time someone brought product roadmapping out of the dark ages of waterfall development and made it into the strategic communications tool it should be. McCarthy and team have cracked the code.”
