Set ambitious and measurable objectives that drive clarity, alignment and bring a unified direction to their operation. Learn how product owners accelerate their business performance with the OKRs.
As product owners, setting the right goals is important to align stakeholders and development teams and to drive product success.
Product owners spend a lot of time understanding the stakeholder needs and defining what success for the product is.
It is important for them to ensure that their product is constantly evolving and that their sales, marketing and customer support teams are aligned with the changes that they are making to the product and with each other.
It is crucial for product managers to understand the business vision, communicate it with their teams and collectively work towards it. While OKRs can facilitate that, there are a few challenges that product managers face with implementing and utilizing OKRs.
The lack of visualization of objectives and key results as drivers of outcomes leads to the failure in implementation of OKRs.
Having a well-defined roadmap and a solid plan can help you organize your priorities efficiently. It should ideally include key results describing how to measure success in accomplishing the objective.
A common mistake made by product managers when implementing OKRs across their teams is isolating the outcomes that involve dependencies from different teams.
Not clarifying the ownership for OKRs is another practice that leads to the failure of OKRs in your organization. This aspect of OKRs is often sidelined by product owners.
It is important for product owners to communicate the importance of OKRs to their teams and help them align their individual goals to the business vision.
