The OKR Podcast is designed for leaders who want to unlock their full organization's growth potential, leveraging the OKR technique and other cutting-edge strategies.
While many recognize the power of Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) to accelerate outcomes and foster a growth and outcomes culture, there is a dearth of information on how to do them well and reap their full benefit. That’s where this podcast comes in!
In this fun interview Marcin Kleczynski, CEO and founder of Malwarebytes, tells the fun story of growing his company from its start when he was a teenager to $30 million in revenue from a college dorm room to $200 million and 800 people today.
Mark Organ is a visionary who founded both Eloqua and Influitive and is the author of the best-selling book The Messenger is the Message. In this episode, Mark talks very candidly about the challenges Influitive faced in 2017 that led him to adopt OKRs and the WorkBoard platform – they’d hit a growth wall and the great people in the org didn’t have great clarity on how best to contribute.
For executive leaders, OKRs represent a communication opportunity. They can provide direction and motivation, clarity and inspiration – a motivated, inspired organization wants to achieve its best possible impact.
We sat down with Konstantin Goldin, Chief of Staff for Cisco Cloud Security, to talk about their transition from “Strategy on a Page” (SOAP) to align the business to a quarterly OKR program in 2018. Konstantin tells us why the Cloud Security Business – a high growth org whose origin is OpenDNS – shifted away from SOAP and what wasn’t working.
