This workshop is part of our #mtpcon Digital 2020 event, happening on 13-15 July (tickets sold separately).
Training Workshop Overview
Objectives and Key Results (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 behaviour, and demotivation.
During this workshop, you’ll gain first-hand experience using OKRs throughout a simulated year-in-the-life of a product team, handling what goes wrong, adjusting course, and managing expectations. You’ll also get the chance to set OKRs for your team and get live feedback you can leverage when you get back to the office.
You'll be taught by Bruce McCarthy, CEO of UpUp Labs (read on for more info on Bruce).
How does "remote" work?
Bruce (your trainer) has converted this one-day workshop into 4 bite-sized sessions taking place over one week so that you can fit it in around your everyday life (and avoid some Zoom fatigue!). We’ll do a little warm-up exercise each day, and take a mandatory 5-10 minute break in the middle of each session.
There will be a combination of pre-workshop activities, homework, a few solo exercises, and group activities throughout.
To maximize our hands-on time in class, every participant is expected to complete about 45 minutes of prep before each session, including watching a few short videos (5-10 min) and completing 1-2 short solo exercises.
- There will be sessions on the 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd of July.
- The start time will be at 8:00am PDT (11:am EDT / 4:00 pm BST) on all 4 days
- Each session will run for 2 hours
- You’ll meet over Zoom, use Breakout Rooms for team exercises, and use Google Jamboard, Google Sheets, and Slack for collaboration
- Each session focuses on hands-on exercises in small teams of 3-4 people
- Each participant will also have the option to book a 30-minute coaching session with your trainer, Bruce McCarthy
- To participate successfully you will need a computer with a webcam, microphone, headphones, and a good internet connection
Please note: This workshop is split across multiple days and you must attend all parts
"I didn't feel like being remote took away from my experience. If anything, I think I prefer it. Class size and my classmates were great and I liked the instructor and the way he ran the workshop."
