This book summary and analysis was created for individuals who want to extract the essential contents and are too busy to go through the full version. This book is not intended to replace the original book. Instead, we highly encourage you to buy the full version. John Doerr met with the founders of a startup to whom he gave $12.5 million in 1999. This was the biggest investment of his career. Larry Page and Sergey Brin had amazing technology, entrepreneurial energy, and great ambitions-but they had no real business plan. To change the world or even simply survive, Google had to make strong choices on priorities while keeping their team on track. They needed to know when to pull the plug or even fail fast. They needed timely, relevant data to monitor their progress-to measure what mattered. Doerr helped them with a proven approach to operating excellence: Objectives and Key Results. He discovered OKRs in the 1970s when he was an engineer at Intel, where Andy Grove, the greatest manager of his era, drove the amazingly run company. As a venture capitalist, Doerr shared Grove´s brainchild with more than fifty companies and whenever it was faithfully practiced, it worked. Objectives define what we want to achieve while key results are about how those goals will be attained through specific, measurable actions within a set time frame. Everyone´s goals-from entry-level to CEO are transparent to the whole company. Its benefits are profound as OKRs help with an organization´s most important work-they focus their effort and foster coordination. They help keep employees on track and they link objectives across teams to strengthen the entire company. OKRs eventually also improve workplace satisfaction and employee retention. Doerr shares a broad range of in-depth look into various companies including the Gates Foundation and Bono to show the focus, agility, and explosive growth that OKRs have created in the leading organizations. This book will create a new generation of leaders that capture the same magic. Wait no more, take action and get this book now!

#1 New York Times Bestseller Legendary venture capitalist John Doerr reveals how the goal-setting system of Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) has helped tech giants from Intel to Google achieve explosive growth-and how it can help any organization thrive. 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 (´´the greatest manager of his or any era´´) 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. In Measure What Matters, 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. This book will help a new generation of leaders capture the same magic.

Have you ever found yourself struggling with information overload? Have you ever felt both overworked and underutilised? Do you ever feel busy but not productive? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is to become an Essentialist. In Essentialism , Greg McKeown, CEO of a Leadership and Strategy agency in Silicon Valley who has run courses at Apple, Google and Facebook, shows you how to achieve what he calls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an Essentialist is about a disciplined way of thinking. It means challenging the core assumption of ´We can have it all´ and ´I have to do everything´ and replacing it with the pursuit of ´the right thing, in the right way, at the right time´. By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter. Using the experience and insight of working with the leaders of the most innovative companies and organisations in the world, McKeown shows you how to put Essentialism into practice in your own life, so you too can achieve something great.
