But my hatred of the KPI just went up a notch.
Am I being unfair? a family kanban board isn’t horrible.
You are not wrong. “I’m sorry Billy, you didn’t hit your KPIs or goals this quarter, so no Christmas presents. This is a decision from above, I went to bat for you but Santa says ‘no’”
And you know OKRs/KPIs are supposed to be stretch goals that you have a 50/50 chance of hitting, which is great for those of us with performance anxieties and perfectionist tendencies. (ok, KPIs aren’t OKRs, but they are so linked in my brain, because what gets measured gets managed)
I struggle a bit with my reaction, because I know there are key indicators that do help parents and their medical teams identify places where interventions could be helpful, so the kid and family aren’t struggling for years fitting a square peg in a round hole. But I don’t think this list is likely to be taking that lens. (again, not going to pay to find out)
ETA: he sent out the first few ideas. A number of books. A decibel measuring device to check whether the white noise device is too loud. Baby tracking apps. An app to predict milestones and fussy periods. A cardboard cutter for all the packages you will be opening. A sleep mask.
The best use of ChatGPT thus far has been using it to write our OKRs at work…it’s word salad and the scoring will be nonsense, but at least we had fun doing it (up through a couple levels of management–above that they seem to care, but since they’re the ones who keep forgetting that our actual job is to design and deliver a damn CPU I don’t pay them much attention).
Tongue in cheek I would find this hilarious. but presented with sincerity I would find it alarming.
Going to get water.
Thank you, I’m about to head out the door and I left my water bottle on the table!
Wait is this NOT a satire piece? It is real?
not satire. also not as bad as the title. A new-parent gift guide for product managers
I somehow read this in Oro’s voice, which is odd since I’ve never heard their voice.
I looked at the chicken first, then the don’t look at this chicken, then game over, and then the chicken game last. I am a mess.
Oh wait that’s a lie I’ve watched their videos. I’m like how am I hearing this and ascribing it to…
I’m giggling yesss
