Speech topic: The role of OKRs in Project Management
Since Google made them popular, OKRs have been an elusive framework: first, there were few available resources; later there was a flood of information - and most of the time it wasn't quite accurate or useful. Overall, most people still seem to believe that OKRs are either a product-market fit tool or a new way to set individual goals and use them for performance reviews: a sort of Management By Objectives + Balanced Scorecard rebranded?
In this talk, we'll try to give you a broader vision of how we've used OKRs as the cornerstone of our digital transformation projects, and how they've helped several different kinds of organizations and teams, from project management to corporate strategy or human resources.
