Where in the world is Holly? Speaking @ Agile & Beyond Conf. – Detroit, Michigan, USA

May 14 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm EDT

I’ll be speaking about OKRs on Tue, 14MAY at the Agile & Beyond 2024 Conference – Huntington Place in Detroit.  If you’d like to explore working with Jeff Patton & Associates – or just have a drink while I’m in town – let’s chat!

Here’s the Conference website link:  http://agileandbeyond.com

And, a bit about my talk:

The Hard Thing about OKRs

The desire to align organizational strategy using Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) has been around since before the former CEO of Intel, Andy Grove, coined the term and introduced OKRs to Intel in the 1970’s. In the past few years interest in using OKRs to drive organizational performance is experiencing a resurgence thanks to thought leaders such as Marty Cagan, Jeff Patton, and Jeff Gothelf. Confusion remains about using OKRs and what leaders need to achieve alignment to a strategy based on them. What’s more – implementation in the context of an organization that wasn’t designed to align to OKRs is hard.

What we’ll do:

  • explore activities based on real world scenarios and examples from large organizations that have struggled with OKRs
  • introduce a framework of strategic tools that help OKR implementation
  • highlight thoughtful OKR implementation approaches
  • crowd-source ways to help you avoid common pitfalls to unleash the power of your organization using OKRs and KPIs
