So, you’ve read “Measure What Matters” and you want to focus and commit to your priorities, improve teamwork and stretch to achieve amazing results. You might be mulling over the benefits of OKRs or you’re ready to jump in with both feet and implement OKRs within your team or organization. But, how do you really get started?

At the end 2018, we reflected on how amazing the year was: Measure What Matters reached #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List, and appeared on Amazon’s Best Books of 2018.

Taking a radical step to increase the transparency within our own organization, we focused on one team goal for 2019 to start: To help another 1,000 teams implement OKRs. But, how could we help everyone on a global scale?

With that specific goal in mind, we introduced Audacious by Measure What Matters in December 2018. Audacious is our regular newsletter that guides you through a year-long cycle of OKRs to help you achieve your goals - both professional and personal.

Audacious continues to help and inspire our readers around the globe. We not only achieved our objective for 2019, but we learned a lot along the way, largely in part to your emails, tweets and posts. Thank you.

This year, we will aim higher as we carry this objective over into 2020: we want to help another 10,000 teams achieve operating excellence through OKRs. Together.

If you haven’t already, subscribe and jump into the cycle at any time.
