Objectives and key results (OKR)

The setting and measuring of goals in the Wecomplish platform is built around the universal goal-setting framework OKR.

OKR us short for Objectives and Key Results and is a methodology ideal for defining and tracking objectives and their outcomes in agile teams.

An OKR is made up of an objective - a clearly defined goal - and specific measures used to track the achievement of that goal. The goal of OKR is to define how to achieve objectives through concrete, specific and measurable actions.

Here's an example of what an OKR looks like in Wecomplish:

Create an objective

Objectives are managed in the context of a team to promote aligning OKRs with the teams purpose. To create a new objective, navigate to the team and select OKR in the left hand side navigation or use quick create.

Objective states

The objective can be in one of the following states:

  • Suggested: Someone has suggested that this is an objective we might benefit from focusing on at some point.
  • Planning: We have started work on describing and planning how to achieve this objective.
  • Focusing: We are currently focused on achieving this objective.
  • Pending: The objective has been temporarily put on hold.
  • Archived: The objective has been archived, either due to it having been met, or due to it no longer being considered relevant.


By adding initiatives you raise awareness of how work is associated with objectives as well as increase the likelihood of work actually being aligned with objectives.

Initiatives can be pre-existing projects or tasks defined in the platform. Items added as initiatives display their related objectives on the reverse side.

Owner, responsible and contributor

By adding an owner, responsible and contributors you make it clear who is expected to hold which role in the achievement of the objective. 

The people you add you add will see their objectives, grouped by their role, in their "Planned work" view.
