Strategic pillars are the key focus area of an organization’s strategy. Strategic pillars will also help to structure and organize OKRs around these focus areas. In OKRify, a strategic pillar can be created using the Create OKR page by clicking the Create button from the Hub and selecting the strategic icon from the top menu in the Create OKR page.
The following fields are available for a Strategic Pillar
- Team (Automatically set to the Company level team)
Strategic pillars can be saved in draft status, can be paused or closed similar to an OKR.
Strategic pillar can be enabled from the OKRify Settings. If Strategic Pillar is enabled then Strategic Pillars will be the first level in the Objective hierarchy. Strategic pillars can be added as a parent OKR in any company or team level OKRs. Strategic pillars will not have key results and there will be no progress tracking for Strategic pillars.
