The case study in the beginning is well written and far more interesting than a typical case study. Yet it really helps to drive home the importance of identifying specific objectives and remaining diligent in focusing on meeting those goals we've set out to achieve. It also covers how having specific roles and adhering to those roles helps so that everyone is contributing to a universal goal by using their individual strengths.
So often we get distracted at work with so many urgent and important things swirling around simultaneously. It's important to be reminded that every time we sway from the responsibilities of our role (even when wearing multiple hats), we're unintentionally taking steps to lead us further away from the goals we've already identified.
I always state this at work, but without remaining focused on our objectives and how our role contributes to that, it's so easy to start making decisions that, while seemingly good and helpful in some way, are not in line with those objectives. Six months later, everyone looks up and wonders how the hell we got where we are. It's a symptom of not having radical focus. I also liked the emphasis on taking time to review with everyone the status of things with everyone, discussing the progress that has been made, and the check-ins which can help celebrate small and big wins, and also spot when things are spiraling off the tracks. Highly recommend the book.
+ For teaching through narrative, for practicality, for implementation advice and pitfalls/real-world examples
- Very little, but a few typos and sometimes felt like pieces of content were stretched to meet a page target
Overall - I'd recommend reading it!
I can definitely recommend this book if you want to understand more about OKR's and lean approaches. It is easy to read and the use of a story line makes it very clear on how OKRs are used ion the specific example.
I have after reading the book worked with OKR, but only for personal goals. Although this is likely easier than for company or team goals, I have still used the ideas from the book and found them useful.
