In this post, we take a look back at some of the key lessons that we’ve learned about OKRs from the #mtpcon stage over the years. (By the way, it’s only five weeks to go until #mtpcon London!) Implementing and monitoring OKRs is a key skill for product managers to grasp early on. It aligns teams, helps to communicate with stakeholders, deal with C-suite executives, and gives product teams a pulse check on their product’s performance.
Being effective and efficient in Product: Learnings from the #mtpcon session speakers
This post rounds up a clutch of talks from the breakout sessions at #mtpcon Digital 2020, including a talk by Bruce McCarthy called OKRs for Product Teams. In it Bruce gives a high-level overview of how OKRs should be used to set realistic goals that bring alignment to your organisation. The talk includes advice on how to avoid common pitfalls, what makes a good OKR and how they differ from KPIs.
Key takeaway: Don’t create OKRs backwards, they’re not what’s in your backlog. Your backlog is a list of things to do, not the outcomes you hope to achieve from those things to do
Measuring the user experience by Tomer Sharon
In this #mtpcon San Francisco 2023 keynote, Tomer Sharon, Co-founder and CXO at workplace experience platform anywell, talks about measuring the user experience and the advantages of high-level metrics.
Key takeaway: Use high-level metrics to quickly understand what’s going on. They can be extremely useful in creating OKRs and for understanding the effect of change.
The only product metric that matters by Josh Elman
In this compelling talk from Mind the Product San Francisco, Josh Elman helps to break through the data noise to define the one product metric that matters based on his experience at LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and the many startups he has worked with.
Key takeaway: We’re all trying to build products that matter and have an impact on our customers’ lives, so focus on just one thing: are people using your product?
