Cascade, Ladder, or Create a Task

The YOW Team

This guide will assist you in effectively cascading objectives, laddering, and managing checklist items.

1. Cascading Objectives

Cascade key results down the hierarchy to build connected objectives for teams to strategize. Transform a key result into an objective, and the parent key result’s progress will be automatically calculated based on the cascaded OKR. To initiate this process, follow these steps:

  • Click on the ‘Cascade’ button located on the key result.
  • The key result evolves into an objective, aligning teams and streamlining goal achievement.

2. Laddering an OKR

Teams can ladder an OKR to an objective or a key result when they believe their contributions can contribute to the OKR’s accomplishment. Here’s how:

  • Access the Objective menu and select ‘Add Parent.’
  • This establishes a hierarchical link between the team’s efforts and the larger organizational goal.

3. Managing Check-List Items

Each key result allows you to add checklist items and track and mark tasks as completed. Here’s how to make the most of this feature:

  • On a key result, click the ‘Check-List’ button.
  • The checklist items will be displayed, and you can add tasks that must be completed to support your Key result.

Cascading, laddering, and utilizing checklist items enrich your OKR management experience. You enhance collaboration, alignment, and task monitoring by embracing these functionalities. Should you have further inquiries, our platform’s user-friendly design ensures that you can seamlessly employ these features to drive goal attainment.
