About the Course

“Ideas are easy. Execution is everything.” -John Doerr In this one-of-a-kind OKR Certification, John Doerr builds on his New York Times best-selling book, Measure What Matters. The chairman of the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, Doerr reveals how the goal-setting system of Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) can lead to exponential growth. This simple yet often misunderstood framework can help any organization thrive through meaningful, ambitious goal setting. After taking the course, you will be able to use the OKR system to: - clearly define and communicate your most important priorities; - align everyone's goals, from entry level to the CEO; - guarantee a commitment to excellence throughout the organization; - definitively track and measure progress for transparent accountability; - stretch for ambitious, amazing achievements; - implement a robust OKR practice within an organization. You’ll learn from real-world examples on how to turn strategies into action plans. You’ll unlock the power of the business community’s goal-setting system of choice. You’ll learn to write effective OKRs, and how to roll out the system within an organization. Ever since they were introduced at Intel by iconic CEO Andy Grove in the 1970s, OKRs have engineered the success of some of the world’s most innovative businesses. John Doerr learned the method from Grove during his time at Intel and famously taught it to founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Google, one of his standout investments. Doerr has continued to refine the system as he passes it on to the founders of his investment portfolio companies at Kleiner Perkins, where he serves as chairman. For the first time, he has gathered his wealth of experience and knowledge into a single educational program. This course is presented by John Doerr and Kleiner Perkins technical advisor Ryan Panchadsaram, former Deputy Chief Technology Officer of the United States....

A thorough and thoughtful view into the OKR framework and the simple, yet profound elements that make it so effective. Ryan has a delivery that is engaging and easy to follow. I found the short lectures followed by targeted reading and case studies to be easy to follow while giving me time to reflect on and apply the learning.

The course is way beyond my expectations. But it's not an easy task. The objectives for each of the modules are extensive and sometimes complex. Nevertheless, it is encouragingly challenging - you can do it, move on. I recommend it to anyone who is seeking to improve their understanding of goal setting and metrics.

One of the best courses I have ever taken in Coursera. The information from both the videos and the readings are informative and very well-articulated. The resources are fully equipped for further study. I can actually roll-out some OKRs practices just from taking the course to the second weeks. Truly recommended!

course is very well designed with combination of video and articles for reading. Examples makes it even more better to understand. If we can continue similar domain of example from start to end it would further enhance the experience. Students can chose their domain and examples flows as per that.

a well structured and organized course from John, Ryan and the team at Measure What Matters. The content videos complemented by optional readings allowed me to learn at my pace, doubling down on context that i felt needed further explanation. Content is enlightening, empowering and fun!

Informative, well-paced, and superb supporting materials. As well as learning about OKRs from the definitive voices on the matter, and learning about how to measure what matters, I learned a lot about how I could prepare future online training of my own. Very enjoyable course.

Going through the course has helped tremendously in my group goal-setting for this quarter. I can't wait to use these learnings for future planning and get my company / or future companies to leverage OKRs for focus, alignment, commitment, tracking and streching!

I find this course very useful and the way the course has been designed is just great.

if I have to provide few feedbacks, it would be to provide more simple and useful case studies.. step by step how it helped organizations.

to sum up.. this is too good.

Having read books and watched some videos about OKRs, I thought I knew what they were all about. But, taking this course helped me to learn a lot more about OKRs - in particular, a lot of practical details on how to introduce and run an OKR practice.

Beautiful program with an optimal mix of videos and reading material. The quizzes help seal the learning. I plan to run through the course material again to go over the key concepts and make a ready reckoner of sorts for personal use.

Thanks for great course of introducing OKRs with many best practices and use cases. Although it always hard for change and no exception with applying OKRs in a company but as a co-founder of my company I think that OKRs worth it!
