Radical Focus: Achieving Your Most Important Goals with Objectives and Key Results
Quick fiction-business read (like The Goal, or Five Dysfunctions) on running simpler projects, with some variant of OKRs. I’ve read Measure What Matters on OKRs before, which in retrospect needs to be more humble in its approach, which Radical Focus is. I read this book because I wanted to see if it would be a good, digestible book to recommend budding tech leads. For that purpose, it’s recommended. It frames what good goals look like, and the importance of a weekly drumbeat to hold each other accountable to those goals. If you’re championing projects and looking for an easy-to-read book to gain some perspective, Wodtke has you covered.
