I am reading a post here on how Google and Zynga set and achieve meaningful OKRs (Objectives and Key Results).
In the post there is one paragraph saying:
If you’re finding your team sets quarterly OKRs only to trash them each quarter given a brilliant mid-quarter discovery, you’re either:
- a 2-sigma team that repeatedly launches industry leading core features every quarter despite not initially planning them
- setting OKRs not “worth doing” as evidenced by repeated willingness to ditch them
- unfocused and need more operational discipline
What does the word "trash" mean?
What does the phrase *"given a brilliant mid-quarter discovery" * mean?
What is the exact meaning of the first sentence?
