OKRs vs product roadmaps: the ultimate guide
OKRs or product roadmaps, can you use both? Yes!
Developing a successful product is no easy task. That's why most project tracking and decision-making frameworks promise to be a "silver bullet" that will solve all your development dilemmas. But with all that noise, how do you know what approach suits your organisation?
If you really want more agile ways to deliver product features. But not just any features—features directly linked to your goals. Then you need to use the OKR framework alongside your product roadmap to determine your product roadmap trajectory.
In fact, you might already be tinkering with OKRs (Objective Key Results). And if you're like most new adopters, you're probably unsure how to apply these goals to your product roadmap and may be asking:
- What are OKRs again?
- Do they replace my roadmap entirely?
- What are they tracking?
- Can they both be used in parallel?
- Where can I find the answers I need?
