John Doerr book delayed after co-author accused of sexual harassment

Penguin Publishing yesterday said that it will indefinitely delay publication of a new management strategies book from venture capitalist John Doerr. The trouble is that Doerr's co-author, BetterWorks CEO Kris Duggan, was just hit with a sexual harassment and assault suit by a former BetterWorks employee.

Axios already received a preview copy of the book, which primarily extols the virtues of OKRs (Objectives & Key Results). It includes a forward from Alphabet CEO Larry Page, who credits Doerr's introduction of OKRs at Google for much of the company's organizational success.
