Custom Tags

A better way to prioritize your OKRs during execution, reviews, and end-quarter reflection.

What are tags?

Tags are essential to highlight and filter high priority items for ease of reviews. After assigning tags to your objectives, it becomes easier to identify them as the type of goals/objectives, as agreed upon by everyone in the organization.

We strongly recommend using “Committed”, “Aspirational” or “Solutioning” tags for OKRs that help clearly identify the nature of the OKR/initiative thereby ensuring the right handling for Performance Management purposes.

The C/A/S tag is also useful for prioritization during execution, reviews, and end-quarter reflection.

Committed: These OKRs are typically BAU where the path of execution is relatively clear. They have to deliver 100% (meet the set targets as discussed and agreed upon with the individuals, teams, and organization).

Aspirational: These are the OKRs where the execution path is not fully clear but the attempt needs to be made. These are your moonshots that have room for variance, and if achieved 70% are considered a breakthrough. It is helpful to define aspirational OKRs over multiple quarters.

Solutioning: These are the OKRs where even half the path to achieving the objective is not clear. These OKRs are taken up to solve complex/difficult problem statements. Solutioning/experimentation OKRs are good to take up first (in the current quarter) ahead of a committed OKR (in the next quarter).

You can create your own custom tags to identify and filter according to your organization’s needs.
