There's likely a reason why you're setting each OKR. Is it supporting another Objective or improving a KPI? You then need somewhere to view the progress of all those aligned OKRs in one place. The Aligned Objectives tab has what you need.
If an aligned OKR has the potential to hamper the Objective that it's supposed to be supporting, the Aligned Objectives tab helps you identify this so you can take action to get it back on track.
The Aligned Objectives tab also helps you to understand why progression of the parent Objective might be lacking. For example, if all aligned OKRs are achieved, but progression on the parent Objective is behind, were these aligned OKRs the right ones to focus on?
Aggregated charts in the Aligned Objectives tab offer an overview of the progression and status of aligned OKRs across groups. If one group’s progression is lagging behind, you’ll know where to focus your attention and resources to get things back on track.
Pro tip: Want to view progress of all Objectives that are aligned to a selection of other Objectives, eg all company annual Objectives, or all Sales KPIs? Use Explore.
How to view aligned Objectives
When viewing any OKR or KPI, click on the “Aligned Objectives” tab to see a list of all the OKRs that are supporting this goal.
You can filter and sort the aligned Objectives as you see fit. This is ideal when looking at long-term Objectives with many short-term OKRs aligned to them, or when looking at the different OKRs that you've used to improve a KPI over time.
Charts on the right-hand side display the percentage of OKRs that have already been achieved, plus details on each group’s progression. Check on the status of OKRs too, so you can course-correct if something is “off track.”
Click into a slice of the “Achieved” pie chart, or dots in the “Groups contribution” graph, to get a filtered list of relevant OKRs, as shown below. From here, you can click on an OKR to start a conversation, celebrate success, or start a discussion of how to address any issues.
