With contributions from Bono and Bill Gates and a foreword by Larry Page, John Doerr’s “Measure What Matters” covers all grounds behind the growth of Intel, Google, Amazon and Uber.

Who is John Doerr? A legendary venture capitalist.

In 1999, he invested around $12 million in a startup that had brilliant technology but no real business plan.

He introduced the founders to OKRs and using them as the foundation of their management, the startup grew to a market cap exceeding $600 billion.

We’re talking about Google.

Measure What Matters covers a broad range of behind-the-scenes case studies to demonstrate the agility and focus that OKRs have helped many-a-great organisations with.
