What’s up Everyone!!
So I’ve noticed that everyone has different ways of qualitatively judging a task, project, or OKR’s status:
- “on track”
- “behind” / “off track”
- “concerned” / “at risk”
I’ve noticed software like Asana, 15five, Lattice, etc. all leave it up to the end user to define for themselves what differentiates between status levels whereas software’s like Atiim have a formula (based on proportion of total time) that automatically tells you if a task/project/OKR is “on track”, “at risk”, “concerned”, or whatever else.
SO, what has everyone here found to be best-practice for your business work or OKR status definitions/formulas? What is the actual difference/definition of “on track” vs “off track”? My feeling is it’s purely a personal confidence level BUT I like numbers so it’s hard for me to accept that
