In the fall of 1999, John Doerr met with the founders of a start-up whom he'd just given $12.5 million, the biggest investment of his career. Larry Page and Sergey Brin had amazing technology, entrepreneurial energy, and sky-high ambitions, but no real business plan. For Google to change the world (or even to survive), Page and Brin had to learn how to make tough choices on priorities while keeping their team on track. They'd have to know when to pull the plug on losing propositions, to fail fast. And they needed timely, relevant data to track their progress, to measure what mattered. Doerr taught them about a proven approach to operating excellence: Objectives and Key Results. He had first discovered OKRs in the 1970s as an engineer at Intel, where the legendary Andy Grove drove the best-run company Doerr had ever seen. Later, as a venture capitalist, Doerr shared Grove's brainchild with more than fifty companies. Wherever the process was faithfully practiced, it worked. In this goal-setting system, objectives define what we seek to achieve; key results are how those top-priority goals will be attained with specific, measurable actions within a set time frame. Everyone's goals, from entry level to CEO, are transparent to the entire organization. The benefits are profound. OKRs surface an organization's most important work. They focus effort and foster coordination. They keep employees on track. They link objectives across silos to unify and strengthen the entire company. Along the way, OKRs enhance workplace satisfaction and boost retention. Doerr shares a broad range of first-person, behind-the-scenes case studies, with narrators including Bono and Bill Gates, to demonstrate the focus, agility, and explosive growth that OKRs have spurred at so many great organizations, helping a new generation of leaders capture the same magic.… (mais)

A good book that has some great ideas. OKR's (Objectives with Key Results) have a wide application - they can be used in various business situations (which is the book's focus), personal development, family interaction, and other social and political applications. I found that the presentation was decent, but at times I wanted more detail. I think that the appendix items are the most useful, as they show the ideas being applied (there is a example of how Google uses OKR's). ( )

OKRs are a good management concept (essentially, finding essential objectives and then some very clear metrics for achievement), extensively used at Google, and while simple, they're hard to master as a practice. This book was a decent overview.

However, this book is filler in between two great alternatives: a simple 30 minute overview of the OKR process, and reading Andy Grove's High Output Management. A lot of it was just Doerr bringing in people in his general orbit to speak about OKRs, largely a marketing exercise. ( )

Narrated by the author lots of famous tech people
Running time:6 hours 7 minutes

1. Loooots of name dropping and argument by authority
2. OKR are still a good method, but you don’t really need that whole book to know that
3. Super easy to cargo-cult adopt OKR, since it’s a super simple idea ( )

I picked up Measure What Matters: How Google, Bono, and the Gates Foundation Rock the World with OKRs because I wanted to learn more about how objectives and key results (OKRs) could be implemented in my department and our college. At one time, I learned that Google used and still uses OKRs to drive their business forward. John Doerr, the author of Measure What Matters introduced OKRs to Google. This is definitely the right person from whom to learn about OKRs. Read more ( )
