Introduction to My Objectives

Overview

Objectives and Key Results keep teams connected, aligned, and moving toward results. Teams work in a variety of ways; around products, functions, and journeys. Alignment is necessary within and across teams to achieve priorities as an organization. OKRs have the power to drive sharp focus, fast growth, and high alignment for organizations of any scale.

My Objectives allows users to focus on the results that matter most and require their attention. Focus on the actions that need to be taken immediately, followed by the Objectives and Key Results most relevant for your role in the organization. 

With My Objectives:

  1. Take immediate action on your results that require focus, attention or celebration via Action Cards.
  2. Keep the results you own or contribute to top of mind with Key Results I Own and Objectives I Own/Contribute To sections.
  3. Monitor and contribute to the results conversations taking place with Results Feed.
  4. Lend a hand or celebrate great progress with your Direct Reports or Teams.
  5. Stay aligned with Leadership priorities and understand how your work matters.
  6. And so much more!

Sections of the My Objectives page

Your single dashboard for all things OKR related is broken up into multiple sections to help you focus your efforts.

All sections can be expanded or collapsed based on your preferences and where you want to focus your attention.

Action Cards

Action cards are the first set of items that require your immediate attention when you log-in.

If you're the manager of one or more teams, you will see the following filter options:

  • Mine - Actions for key results where you are the direct owner
  • My teams - Actions for key results where you are the team manager

The three actions available today are:

  • Updates needed - The key result data is stale and requires an update
  • Results worth celebrating - Celebrate exemplary achievement by adding a comment or reaction to results above plan
  • Results at risk - Add a comment, ping for update or add an update to help unblock and rally focus to turn the ship on underperforming results

Key Results I Own

  • Updates needed - Key results that are stale and require an update
  • At Risk - Key results that are underperforming and require additional attention
  • Moderate Risk - Key results that are middle of the road and at amber RAG

Objectives I Own / Objectives I Contribute To

The objectives where you are listed as the owner will be displayed under the Objectives I Own section.

If you are not listed as the owner of any Objective, but you contribute to a team with team Objectives, these OKRs will be displayed under the Objectives I Contribute To section.

If you own both Team and Personal Objectives, you will see two chips to help you filter between the two selections.

If you do not own any Objectives and are a member of more than one team with OKRs, you will see a + button to help you add additional team OKRs that you contribute to.
