Discussion on: OKRs from a development team’s perspective

While I totally agree that it's highly unlikely it'll work in a bigger company, that still means it's a workaround. I'd like to know a way to incorporate technical debt and refactoring into OKR principals (with the assumption that all parties involved understand the importance). Of course we can find workarounds like the 70-30-rule (which actually sounds reasonable, I think), but I still think there's value in trying to find a way of adapting it into OKRs in an ideal scenario, as to learn from it and maybe actually implement it at least in some way somewhere.

I personally have trouble finding a metric to measure technical debt by, so I'm curious whether anyone knows of a good one to use...?
