When starting an organization or business, it is imperative to have a reliable organizing principle. When John Doerr worked at Intel in the 1970s and 80s under Andy Groves, arguably the best manager of his generation, Doerr learned a simple management strategy that has empowered wildly successful companies and individuals to become world changers. In Measure What Matters, Doerr shares that secret with the rest of us.
