Educational, inspirational, entertaining, ~dry..

As one of the preeminent Oracles on turning nothing into something, when John Doerr speaks, it's "probably" best that we pay attention. And in this audible, John has help from many high-producing people who tell their own stories.

Following the "Ideas are cheap, execution is everything" ideal, this book is somewhere between an exhibitionary, to an in-depth guide, on how to produce lasting results in any area of your life. Here is what I got out of it:

Educational- How and why to implement OKR's (Objectives and Key Results) and CFR's (Conversations, Feedback, and Recognition), ideas originated at Intel by Andy Grove.

Inspirational- Hearing the pragmatic parts of real success stories is always inspirational.

Entertaining- This audible includes a full cast of characters; some as necessary imitations, but mostly the originals.

Dry- For me it was a bit dry at times, as "educational" topics sometimes are; so depending on your taste, you might want to prepare to rewind many times so you don't miss out something important. Worth the rewinds, though.

In all, we are very lucky to have access to such invaluable experiences as exhibited in this book.

Last chapter covers what matters most

Last chapter covers what matters most and with more detail; the rest of the book is anecdotes.

Inspiration and knowledge on OKRs

This is a great resource on extensive OKR knowledge. From historical explanation on the subject, to hands on explanation on how to use and apply OKR now within any organisation - small or large. The book is full of examples from players like Google and Intel to mention few. As an extra spice it is in part read by Bill Gates, Bono and many others who use the OKRs within their organization. An amazing book!

Blueprint for working smarter

ideas vs execution. Andy Grove's statement about all the hard work that's done by so many but not effective execution hit home

Less instructional, but interesting

Little content about the framework. The author spend much time telling stories about startups implementing OKRs, but no how they implemented, instead, the changes that OKRs bring to their organizations. Compelling and inspirational. Read it if you want to find reasons for adopting OKRs.
