Input, Output, Outcome, and Impact

Inputs, outputs, outcomes, and impacts are important terminologies to understand when discussing how product teams and OKRs work together.

Inputs refer to the specific resources required to achieve a goal, while outputs are the immediate results of that goal, such as deliverables. Outcomes are the long-term effects of the goal, and impacts refer to the overall effects on the organization from achieving the goal, such as increased revenue or improved customer satisfaction. Product teams should consider all these factors to be successful in their OKRs.
