We are really excited to announce a world first, the launch of the Official OKR podcast Giant Talk.

Viv Parry, seasoned business advisor and mentor, hosts these podcasts all about finding solutions to the challenges of growing tech businesses, along with some deep dives into the OKR (Objectives and Key Results) methodology.

We know that understanding people is one of the critical success factors in business so we also try to get a bit closer to the human in our conversations.

In this episode we’re delighted to be talking to one of the most recent Giants, Lawrence Walsh.

We chat about customer service, lace pinnies, business growth and the importance of leadership and positive culture.

There’s lots of stuff about professional and career development and the failure of the annual appraisal.

And a great discussion about the importance of purpose, empowerment, transparency and autonomy

We also get into some real nitty gritty on cross-functional OKRs preventing silo working, bringing all the organisation together and promoting collaborative working.

If you’re looking for some nuggets about regular check ins then this is the podcast for you.

There’s also an update on the OKR Coach portal for anyone looking for an OKR community.
