Enable aligning (one or more) objectives to key results

Situation: A team sets up a series of objectives and key results. The team members define their own objectives, which collectively lead to those key results.
Complication: Team members cannot align objectives to support key results. They can ONLY convert the key result to a sub objective and then list key results from there.
Solution: Allow for more flexible alignment of objectives to other items.

Further notes: OKR advice suggests AGAINST this kind of strict alignment. It makes the system much less useful.

  • Same need here. I'd like to be able for teams to align to KRs without them having to ask the objective owner to convert a KR to an objective. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  • This is also an issue for us -- we are bypassing it by effectively making objectives that are really key results.  This is not the way the OKR framework is promoted in a "textbook" fashion, as the original poster noted.
