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 50 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 1. Language: English.

Mit seiner weltweit führenden Suchmaschinentechnik, einer Armee von kreativen Köpfen und einer Marktkapitalisierung, die schon eineinhalb Jahre nach dem Börsengang die 100-Milliarden-Dollar-Grenze überschritten hat, kann sich das Unternehmen aussuchen, welchen nächsten Schritt es als nächsten unternimmt... Kaum eine Branche ist vor Google sicher. Dabei galt das Unternehmen lange als Sympathieträger. Sergey Brin und Larry Page lernten sich an der Stanford-Universität kennen: zwei nette Jungs, die eine gute Idee hatten und ein Unternehmen gründeten, dessen Motto auch heute noch ´´Don´t be evil´´ lautet. Schrittweise behandeln die Autoren, wie Google - unter Mithilfe gewiefter Investoren, einer unkonventionellen Unternehmenskultur und der besten Cafeteria von Silicon Valley - einen Erfolg nach dem anderen feierte. Die Google-Story ist die exzellent recherchierte Chronik einer einzigartigen Unternehmensentwicklung. Innerhalb von nur fünf Jahren entwickelte sich die Suchmaschine Google vom kalifornischen Studentenprojekt zum globalen Giganten. Pulitzer-Preisträger David A. Vise hat das erste umfassende Buch über das Weltunternehmen geschrieben. Spätestens seit dem Börsengang im Mai 2004 ist Google ein vielköpfiger Drache, der nicht allein Bill Gates nervös macht.
