We understand that sometimes you may outperform your Key Result target — that's great!
If we recall, an Objective's success is a based on:
the performance of the Key Result(s) by default (see this article for more options)
and progress is weighted equally between the respective Key Results (please note that any negative values will be treated as 0% in the weighting process)
Because of this, it's important that the impact of a Key Result's progress be capped at 100% so that it doesn't falsely distort the integrity of the outcome.
For instance, if you have 2 Key Results, one has 0% progress and the other has 200%, that would translate into an average of 100% and mean that your Objective has been achieved. Capping it at 100% more appropriately represents the reality of achieving one of your Key Results and shows that your Objective progressed 50%:
