Teams sit with project advisors and review OKRs for semester phase just finished and finalize OKRs for next phase.


Milestone 1 is the wrap up of the getting organized phase of the course - the first two weeks. Each team should meet with faculty project advisor at mutual convenience toward the end of week 2.

The overall objectives for phase one of the course are

  1. get team stuff worked out
  2. have plans for phase 2 (the research phase)
  3. have thought about the whole semester/project

Under these objectives we have the following “measurable results” or deliverables:

  1. team comms and conversation has happened, people demonstrably on same page;
  2. a (written) research plan for the next phase – what needs finding out and how is it going to be found out; # a sketch of a lean canvas for the project
  3. written objectives and results/deliverables with dates, amounts, etc. for phase 2
  4. a zeroth draft sketch of objectives for other milestones to the degree that they can be imagined at this point in the semester

The point of "measurable" results is that the advisor, as evaluator, can, in conversation with the team, say to what degree they have been achieved (that is, zero to 100%). This is easier with some results than others, but the point is to establish accountability for real "do-ables."

The alignment of objectives - more abstract descriptions of where the pieces of the project need to get to - and the activities and observable/measurable results is a dialectical process. Deliberately so. We want to be moving back and forth between "what are we trying to accomplish here" and "what are we actually doing."

After advisor and team have assessed the observable/measurable results, you turn to the objectives and rate each one as meeting, exceeding, or falling short of expectations at this milestone. And, obviously, some thinking and planning should be done around those where we fall short of expectations.
