Visibility

Transparency seeds collaboration

As John Doerr once said, “Transparency seeds collaboration” therefore, OKRs within an organization must be accessible to all employees.

Set the visibility of the OKRs. There are 5 levels of visibility, not necessarily mutually exclusive.

  • All Employees
  • My Management
  • My Directs
  • My Team
  • Only Myself

You generally want your OKRs to be visible company-wide in the interest of complete transparency. There are certainly reasons to restrict some OKRs to a narrower level of visibility and you decide that based on your circumstances.
