Ideas are cheap. Execution is everything.
This month, Christina Wodtke is giving a sneak preview of her SXSW talk and upcoming new book The Executioner’s Tale.
How do you inspire your team to be insanely great–and accountable? Google, Zynga, KPCB’s John Doerr and Intel all used the Objective and Key Result approach (OKRs) as the secret for providing the discipline for radical growth. Many start-ups as well as established companies are adopting it, hoping to throw accelerant on their execution.
But OKRs are controversial and while they sound simple, they aren’t easy. Christina’s been refining the OKR process with the start-ups she invest in and advises.
Drinks start at 6pm. Dinner and the panel start at 7pm, followed by lively discussions at each table. Seating is limited to 50 for this event. Thanks to Kayvan Baroumand and our friends at NestGSV for generously hosting us in their great Redwood City office.
