There are three different types of Objectives available in the platform.

Personal objective

Personal objectives inform actions taken at an individual or small-team level. Personal objectives typically have one owner, the individual responsible for finishing the objective.

Departmental objective

Department objectives are higher-level, team-based objectives that a group of team members as a unit work towards. They are usually owned by a team lead, manager or director.

They are different from personal objectives since they define at a higher level what the team as a whole is striving to achieve, whereas the personal objective outlines the subset of the overall goal one person in particular is working to achieve.

Organizational objective

Organizational objectives relate to the strategic direction of the organization, they signal the values and overarching business priorities.
