Agile Kitchen session: Reawakening Agile with OKRs

Cooking soon...

25 January 2022





25/01/2022 @ 16:30 18:00

To some OKRs are wrong, OKRs are a reinvention of top-down management by objective with added metrics to mislead and distort reality. Such OKRs are little more than a return of return to command and control.  

That’s what this former OKR cynic thought, but after using OKRs with multiple teams he got a surprise: they work. Used right OKRs fit well with agile. 

OKRs offer the tantalising prospect of reawakening agile’s radical side, aligning management with teams, improving communication and resolving the tyranny of the backlog. 

In this presentation Allan Kelly will share his journey from cynic to enthusiast and explain how to use OKRs for good.

This is an online session and will be organized with Zoom. The participants will receive the Zoom connection details upon inscription.

Allan Kelly considers himself an Agile Guide – he helps software professionals enjoy more fulfilling and satisfying work by improving the way work is organised and requests are made. Happier people and better ways of working make for more effective companies, greater value and competitive advantage. 

His wide experience of the challenges faced in software development underpins his advice, coaching, training and writing. Allan’s latest book is “Succeeding with OKRs in Agile”, on Twitter he is @allankellynet.


iLean’s Agile Kitchen

Our initiative

The last few years the world of work changed quite a bit, and many Agile community initiatives struggled to stay operational. With iLean’s Agile Kitchen we want to contribute in bringing the community back together in ways that suit our new reality.

In the Agile Kitchen we want you to be more involved and enlarge the learning potential of yourself and our community!

iLean's Agile Kitchen

Our concept

It’s simple: iLean’s Agile Kitchen is about Agile and people!

Every 6 weeks we gather around one or more Agile topics for intereactive learning sessions and knowledge sharing. We invite speakers from our community (maybe you?), or national and international thought leaders to facilitate these sessions about specific Agile topics. The topics we chose are your topics. We gather them on our Agile Kitchen Miro board and give you the possibility to introduce or support relevant topics.

Let’s get cooking!
