Measure What Matters by John Doerr

(New York: Penguin, 2018), 287

  • OKRs = Objectives & Key Results

    • "what" and "how"

    • reviewed quarterly

    • public and transparent

    • bottom-up or sideways (50%)

    • mostly divorced from compensation

    • aggressive and aspirational

  • Example OKR:

    • Objective: Demonstrate the 8080's superior performance as compared to the Motorola 6800

    • Key Results:

    • Deliver five benchmarks.

    • Develop a demo.

    • Develop sales training materials for the field force.

    • Call on three customers to prove the material works.

  • Four OKR Superpowers:

    1. Focus and Commit to Priorities

    2. Align and Connect for Teamwork

    3. Track for Accountability

    4. Stretch for Amazing

  • CFRs = Conversation, Feedback, and Recognition for continuous performance management
  • Andy Grove taught Doerr OKRs at Intel and he has been an OKR evangelist since
