Outcome OKRs for Product Teams Course

How to create outcome-driven product

processes in your company

This course will help turn Objectives and Key Results into a powerful tool you can use to create outcome-driven product processes in your company and create better, more impactful products.

This course teaches you how to use OKRs to inform your work – from Product Strategy to Discovery to Delivery

In eight video modules, you will find answers, practical examples, and room for your own exercises inside our course Outcome OKRs for Product Teams.

After completing this course, you'll feel confident that your day-to-day work effectively contributes to your company vision and product goals. And you’ll know how to use OKRs in order to focus your work on outcomes, instead of features.

From our work, we know that product companies are on their path toward higher outcome achievement. Because OKRs can be a very important driver of change, we focus on the combination of Outcome OKRs for product teams.

What makes this course different
from other OKR Courses

Practicality

Most OKR courses focus on teaching you ONE process and leave out the hard bits of making OKRs work with the practical reality of product teams. We know what it takes to bridge the gaps.

Individuality

We acknowledge the individual approaches to OKRs. Our course will support you with finding your own path to using OKRs.

Experience

This course is for Product Managers by a Product Manager and an OKR coach with years of experience in leveraging OKRs to create better products.

Especially showing us our maturity around the definition of Objectives and Key Results helped us to tremendously increase the value our OKR Systems bring to our organization.

Your Questions answered

Will this help me implement OKRs in my company?

This course is a better fit for companies that already use OKRs or are already committed to start using OKRs. It'll also be useful for PMs who think they can sway their company to start using OKRs. Even though, we talk about about the basics of defining OKR Sets and the OKR Cycle elements, implementing OKRs requires organization-wide buy-in.

Do I have to complete the course before I can get started with OKRs?

No, you don’t. Chances are, that you already have practical experience using OKRs. Our course encourages students to implement what they have learned and constantly reflect and adjust their processes.

Will this course help me with defining roadmaps with a focus on OKRs?

Yes! We have a dedicated lecture around setting up a Product Roadmap, that is based on your Outcome OKRs, instead of just listing random feature ideas and arbitrary timelines.

Will this course help me with setting a Product Strategy?

We will address some of the needed attributes of a Product Strategy to support setting Outcome OKRs and share frameworks we have seen working for this. The course assumes some basic knowledge of how Product Strategy works.

Will this course help me with conducting Product Discovery?

This course focuses on how Outcome OKRs and Product Discovery affect each other and how to set up your processes to make them work together smoothly. For a dedicated learning experience around Product Discovery though, we recommend Tim’s Adaptable Product Discovery Course.

Does the course include recommendations for OKR tools?

No. We believe that depending on the size of your organization, many teams can easily start-out with Google Sheets, instead of a dedicated tool. While our course is tool-agnostic, we occasionally partner and recommend Workpath and Leapsome.

How long will I have access to the course content?

How does “forever” sound? As long as the course exists, you will be able to access the material.

We have tried OKRs in the past but felt like it wasn’t for us.

We hear that a lot. From our experience, this is because companies are attracted by the shiny object syndrome of "working like Google", and never take the time to define their actual reason WHY behind using OKRs, and don't adjust the tool to their existing way of working. Our course tackles these issues by helping you to recognize your own reason WHY as well as integrating it with your existing way of working as an Agile Product Team.

How much time do I need to go through this course?

The course allows you to access all material at the same time.  For completion from start to end including the exercises and reflections, you should plan for 5-6 hours. We highly recommend working through the course material in batches and maybe even together with a learning buddy who is also enrolled in the course. If you’re interested in training your entire team, please reach out via hello@herbig.co to learn more about group discounts.

Can I work through the course at my own pace?

Absolutely! The course is designed to help you learn on your own terms. You can skim the material and pick what you want to learn next whenever you have the time.

Can I get a refund if I don't learn anything new?

You absolutely can. I offer a full, no questions asked, 30-day money-back guarantee. Just get in touch with me if this is the case.

Can I get my company to pay for this?

Most students have used their company training budget to enroll in the course. Especially in times like this, many more companies are willing to invest in online training resources. You can use these resources to ask your employer to pay or reimburse you for this course. It's a nifty little template that helps you make the ask and explain how this will help you in your role and your company at large.

I have a question I'd like answered before I buy - who should I talk to?

Please email us directly via hello@herbig.co and we’re very happy to help you.
