Dear all,

OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) are spreading like wildfire. Someone just called them the 2nd most influential movement in the Palo Alto hills after ‚Love and Peace‘. Or something to the effect.

And for good reason. In our pandemic world many businesses’ resources are increasingly scarce. Survival more than ever depends on focused and aligned execution of a strategy.

As with anything that is adopted at scale by the Silicon Valley, development of OKRs as a method has been rapid. John Doerr‘s seminal 2017 book all of a sudden feels a bit like listening to Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock. Stellar performance, but it may get even better with some remastering.

To that effect this weekend’s reads:
