E51: Measure What Matters by John Doerr [Book Analysis]

VidMark Podcast

This week we dive into a book analysis of Measure What Matters by John Doerr. Many of us have heard of SMART goals, but what about OKRs? (Objectives and Key Results). TOPICS: Google implementation and success with OKRs Intel model for success Objectives = vision/inspirational Key Results = Milestone Goals should be public + clear to get buy-in, Everyone working in same direction OKR’s behind all billion dollar products: Google Search, chrome, android, maps, youtube, google play, and gmail OKRs Create = focus/commitment to product, teamwork, accountability, stretch better than animal performance revents, instill continuous improvements, importance of culture How to Create Effective OKRs Crush the purpose for a task (make it overly clear) Setting goals for the next 6-12 months, setting goals is important (non action or nondecisions leads to nothing) Creating a goal driven culture OKR tips: Keep the number of quarterly OKRs to 3-5 All key results must result in the obtainment of the objective or else it is not an OKR OKRs are not set in stone, you can change them along the way for the process Goals need to be specific and time bound MyFitnessPal Example Intuit Example: Scoring assessment after: 0.07 - 1.0 is success, 0.4-0.6 progress made but not completed, 0.0-0.04 (failed, little to no progress made) Reflection Questions: - Did I accomplish all of my goals, why or why not? - What obstacles did I encounter? - What did I learn that I can apply to next goal? - The YouTube story - Adobe Check-In’s - Bono’s One Campaign Summary: how to manage lofty goals or a company where there are a million things that are a priority. Measuring things back to Key Results that are measurable and obtainable. Disclaimer This Podcast represents the opinions of the host of the show and his guests.
