The basic idea of the Workpath graph is to create an overall image of the organizational goal network. The center always shows the company's organizational goals (here colored bubbles). On the left-hand side, you can start by selecting whether you want to only display the Organizational Goals or all Goals at once.
Since the Workpath allows you to set dependencies and alignments between different goals, these can also be seen in the graph.
Once the alignment is done, you can see which team goals "contribute" to which organizational goals or other team goals (or which organizational goals depend on which team goals). For more details on how to see Goal alignments in the Graph, read See Alignment in Goal Graph .
This already shows that a team objective can be relevant for several key results of an organizational objective or also for several organizational goals:
In the overall view you can hence see
- how the goals of the entire company are interrelated
- which teams are involved where
- whether there are team goals that may not "pay in" to any organizational goal
- where support may still be needed, e.g. because a goal is only supported by two teams
The Graph can therefore be used as a diagnostic tool to question and react to these facts.
Furthermore, it is possible to make changes in the visualization here:
- In the view Level, you can see on which level the Goals are located (Organizational or Team Goals).
- The view Confidence level shows you the current Confidence Level (from 1-10/red to green) in the goal/key result, i.e. how likely it is that an objective/key result will be achieved.
- The Progress view shows you the actual progress (0-100%) set by the key results/metrics.
- Finally, there is the Progress vs. Time view, which shows you the progress in relation to the remaining time until quarter/cycle end, to see if a target is still "good in time".
These settings also help - especially during the cycle - to detect mismatches between status and progress and to react accordingly.
Right next to the visualization, you can select which Due Date (cycle) you want to display the Goals for:
On the right-hand side, you can also filter the displayed Goals by the Team they belong to:
The Graph will show all Goals of the selected team as well as all goals from any child team of the selected team. Furthermore, the graph will display a few more goals in a semi-transparent way to show how the goals of the selected team relate to the organizational goals.
