We’ve got an unusual bonus episode this time around—one that in many ways recalls our old New Years’ resolutions episodes! We’re implementing an objectives and key results system behind-the-scenes here at Saving the Game, in order to grow the podcast and make sure we’re doing everything we can to improve the quality of our show. Since Grant’s also implementing it at work, it seemed like a good topic of conversation all on its own—a system any organization (from enterprises to families) can use to set measurable objectives.
As such, we go over the basics of the OKR system, then follow it up with a description of the objectives we’ve set and the key results measuring our progress on those objectives—everything from increasing listenership to improving our YouTube channel. We also talk about our appearance on the forthcoming episodes of City on a Hill Gaming, and “Session Zero” of Grant’s private-investigators-in-Sharn Eberron D&D game. We hope you find this edifying. We certainly did!
The book mentioned in the episode is John Doerr’s Measure What Matters.
