Product Makers Summit – March 21st – Registration is now OPEN
Sep 13, 2022
In their book The Knowing-Doing Gap, Bob Sutton and Jeffrey Pfeffer discuss how companies that embraced hot new methodologies like Six Sigma and TQM failed to achieve the promised improvements.
But we know better now these days, right? HA! Lean, Agile, and now OKRs all suffer from the same problem: everyone adopts them and then many people say that they don’t work and that they hate them. Why do new frameworks and methodologies go from the hottest thing in Silicon Valley to the things we love to hate?
In this talk, OKRs expert Christina Wodtke will explain how a combination of opportunistic consultants, toxic environments, poor communication and good old fashioned laziness has led us to throw out the baby with the bathwater. And she’ll share her advice on how to avoid falling into this trap and how to use OKRs effectively in your org.
After Christina’s talk, she and Dan Olsen will have a fireside chat followed by audience Q&A.
Join us for an informative and engaging session!
