This Review | This Book

This is the masterwork about OKRs – Objectives and Key Results. This is a management concept pioneered by Andy Grove in the 1970s at Intel, and championed by Google. The author, John Doerr, is a billionaire VC investor who worked for Grove and was an early investor in Google, to which he brought OKRs.

Doeer is interesting, but the book is a little bloated. There are “case study” chapters, written by others, about how they integrated OKRs at their companies. Some are interesting, but many are repetitive.

The book could have easily been half the size it is, and lost nothing for it.

This is item #110 in a sequence of 502 items.
