Transparency seeds collaboration

In line with John Doerr’s statement that “transparency seeds collaboration,” it is beneficial to ensure that OKRs within an organization are visible to all employees. In, there are various options available for determining the visibility of OKRs, allowing customization at different levels. These five levels of visibility are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

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

Promoting accountability and maintaining high motivation, company-wide transparency (labeled as “All Employees”) can be advantageous. Nevertheless, depending on the nature of a specific goal, it can also be beneficial to establish a more limited visibility level, such as “Only Myself” or “My Team.”
