              The revolutionary movement behind the explosive growth of Intel, Google, Amazon and Uber.With a foreword by Larry Page, and contributions from Bono and Bill Gates.Measure What Matters is about using Objectives and Key Results (OKRs), a revolutionary approach to goal-setting, to m...ake tough choices in business. In 1999, legendary venture capitalist John Doerr invested $11.8 million in a startup that had amazing technology, entrepreneurial energy and sky-high ambitions, but no real business plan. Doerr introduced the founders to OKRs and with them at the foundation of their management, the startup grew from forty employees to more than 70,000 with a market cap exceeding $600 billion. The startup was Google.Since then Doerr has introduced OKRs to more than fifty companies, helping tech giants and charities exceed all expectations. In the OKR model objectives define what we seek to achieve and key results are how those top- priority goals will be attained. OKRs focus effort, foster coordination and enhance workplace satisfaction. They surface an organization's most important work as everyone's goals from entry-level to CEO are transparent to the entire institution. 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 show you how to collect timely, relevant data to track progress - to measure what matters. It will help any organization or team aim high, move fast, and excel. John Doerr joined Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers in 1980 and has since backed some of the world's most successful entrepreneurs and companies, such as Google, Zynga and Amazon. John serves on the boards of Google, Zynga and Amyris. He also led KPCB's investment in Twitter. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and was a member of U.S. President Barack Obama's

              Venture capitalist John Doerr reveals a sweeping--and actionable--plan to cut carbon emissions to net zero, using powerful levers to conquer humanity's greatest challenge: climate change. In 2006, acclaimed investor John Doerr and his partners at Kleiner Perkins launched their fi...rst clean technology fund. They've backed more climate entrepreneurs than anyone and invested in a wide range of solutions, amassing hard-earned lessons along the way. Yet years later, despite breakthroughs in batteries, electric vehicles, and solar and wind power, we are not on track to limit global warming. Instead, we are on the brink of an all-out crisis. Today, climate change is being tackled inconsistently and insufficiently. More than ever, we need a clear course of action. What if the techniques that powered the rise of today's most innovative organizations were brought to bear on humanity's greatest challenge? Fueled by a powerful goal-setting tool called objectives and key results (OKRs), SPEED & SCALE offers an unprecedented global plan for cutting emissions and reaching net zero by 2050. Used by Google, Bono's ONE foundation, and startups the world over, OKRs have scaled ideas into movements that changed the world. With clear-eyed realism and science-backed precision, Doerr identifies the OKRs we need to reduce emissions across every sector of the economy--with all possible speed. Equally inspiring and pragmatic, SPEED & SCALE intersperses Doerr's learnings with firsthand accounts from Jeff Bezos, Christiana Figueres, Al Gore, Mary Barra, Bill Gates, and other intrepid entrepreneurs, activists, and scientists. A launchpad for those who want to act, this book is for ambitious leaders of every ilk. With a definitive plan, science, and inspiration on our side--there is no more time to waste.
