Step 2: Write why the goal is important.

Write a description to remind yourself and your teammates about the importance of the goal.

Step 3: Write Key Result or Milestone.

What is a key result:
A key result is a measurable indicator to help make sure you are on track to achieve your goals: if your company goal was to “Become a self-sustaining organisation”, your Key results might be:

  • Increase revenue by 10%
  • Reduce costs by 3%
  • Hire 10 Sales people

What is a Milestone:
Sometimes there are big projects you need to do to achieve your goal, these projects are not always measurable, but are key for the success of your goal. For example, you must launch a new product in order to achieve your goal to“Become a self-sustaining organisation”. your key results may be a combination of measurable key results and non-measurable milestones.

  • launch a new product
  • Increase revenue by 10%
  • Reduce costs by 3%
  • Hire 10 Sales people

Now, write your Key Result or Milestone & decide how you will measure progress for your Goal. Metrics to measure can be:

  • Percentage (%): e.g. increase revenue by 20%
  • Number (#): e.g. hire 3 sales people
  • Money ($): e.g, sell $200,000 more supplies
  • Open Or close (/): closed or completed status. e.g. Launch a new product

Click on “…” to expand the Goal options.

Goals can be for a team or an Organisation. If it’s a team goal, choose a team. 

Lastly, add your goal!
