The goal lead is the person ultimately responsible for a goal, but that usually doesn't mean the lead is the only person working on that goal (learn why).

You can lead a KPI, Objective, Key Result, or an Initiative.

The goal lead is responsible for:

  • Updating progress

  • Keeping the goal on track

  • Act as the main point of contact when someone has a question about that goal

Who should be the lead?

As an Executive or Team lead (i.e. department head or team lead), you should not lead all the KPIs or OKRs. You simply don't have the time.

Instead, you should delegate responsibility and assign fellow Team members as the lead to your organization's or team's goals. As a guideline:









Team lead/member
