Description

How do you inspire a diverse team to work together, going all out in pursuit of a single, challenging goal? How do you get your team to commit to bold goals? How do you stay motivated despite setbacks and disappointments? And what do you do when it looks like you're headed for failure? In Radical Focus, Christina Wodtke combines her hard earned experience as an executive at Zynga, Linkedin and many of Silicon Valley's hottest companies to answer those questions. It's not about to-do lists and accountability charts. It's about creating a framework for regular check-ins, key results, and most of all, the beauty of a good fail - and how to take a temporary disaster and turn it into a future success. 

In this book, Wodtke takes you through the fictional case study of Hanna and Jack, who are struggling to survive in their own startup. They fight shiny object syndrome, losing focus, and dealing with communication issues. After hard lessons, they learn the practical steps they need to take to do what must be done. The second half of the book demonstrates how to use objectives and key results (OKRs) to help teams realize big goals in a methodical way, leaving nothing to chance. Laid out in a practical but compelling way, she makes the lessons of Hanna and Jack's story clear and actionable. 

Ready to move your team in the right direction? Listen to this, and learn the system of creating your focus - and finding success. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Too Short to Give Much

dont get me wrong its not a bad book, it just was not long enough to learn anything from. I listened to measure what matters and thought this would be a good listen to supplement it. after listening I dont find it covered anything better than "the source material" (measure what matters) did.

in short if you havent read measure what matters this wont give you enough information to understand okrs. if you have read measure what matters you dont need to read this book.

Great book to read

This is a great book to read especially if you’re new to OKRs. It helps understand the importance of the process and provides clear guidelines on implementation #Audible1

Tedious

While the book had decent content I felt both the narration and the story was tedious I would’ve preferred a much more concise approach to the key elements of the book

From insight to execution

This great book takes you trough a detailed explanation on OKRs, that leads to insight and further to execution. First part of the book is written in a fun novel style - the last part has hands on OKR models to use. Nice chapter on OKRs in product development. Great book!

Good book, took a while to get to the point

The book made an excellent case for the OKR process and I liked how it started off with a compelling story. My only minor complaint is that the story took a little long to get to the point. Overall, an excellent book to understand how to bring focus to a business/organization and keep things on track. I would definitely recommend this book to others and I'm looking forward to implementing the OKR process in my organization.

Excellent treatment of OKRs

In about 3 1/2 hours, this book presents the key elements of OKRs (Objectives and Key Results). Not everyone is a fan of the "business novel" concept (such as Eliyahu Goldratt's The Goal), but I enjoy that style from time to time. This book actually is two short books in one ... an engaging business fable and an excellent, concise presentation of the use of OKRs. If you're not a fan of business novels, the second half of the book is well worth the purchase price.

Loved the fictional startup story!

I didnt know what OKRs were and now I do! goal accomplished. I MOST loved the fictional story that composed the body of this book. it was about a tea startup founded by friends Hannah and Jack. The author achieved fantastic fiction writing. and it was a truly engaging look into what it would be like working for a startup.

Super helpful for people with no experience in OKR

I gave it 3 stars just because there was nothing knew for me. If you have already read "Measure what matters" by John Doerr, you are pretty much covered.

However, its well written, easy to listen and most of all full of actionable advice and tricks when starting out with OKR's.
