Introducing airfocus Objectives & OKRs: Unlocking Strategic Alignment for Product Teams

Effective goal setting is the cornerstone of successful product management, and it's what sets the direction for your team's efforts. No matter the size of your organization, or how many teams or products you have, achieving alignment and transparency in your organization's objectives is crucial for success.

The challenge often lies in managing objectives efficiently. Many organizations struggle with using multiple tools, and more than 90% of our customers reported they still use spreadsheets and other general-purpose tools to manage OKRs which can be confusing, frustrating, and time-consuming. We had to do something about this.

That's why we are excited to announce our game-changing new feature, the airfocus Objectives app.

Born out of 8 rigorous months and a vision to simplify OKR tracking, with the new airfocus Objectives app you can track multiple teams' progress, from user stories to company-wide objectives — all in one place.

It is a groundbreaking solution for product teams looking to add a layer of product strategy to their airfocus setup, connect their OKRs with their product roadmaps and workflows, and enhance collaboration across the organization. All while seamlessly embedding your OKRs into your existing product work, eliminating the need for switching between multiple tools.

Why use airfocus Objectives?

Transform the way you connect OKRs to product roadmaps with the new Objectives app. Move beyond the limitations of spreadsheets and disjointed strategies.
