Managing restricted OKR visibility was the main hurdle for the partner organization
UpRaise for Employee Success is built on the philosophy of full flexibility to address the complex needs of large organizations.
It is said that the difficulty of OKR adoption increases as the age at which the organization adopts it for the first time moves up. Considering how the current leading practitioners of OKRs started when they were fairly small, lends credence to this idea. By the same logic, it is easy to assume that 2020's second-largest software company by revenue and market capitalization would face some hurdles in shifting to OKRs.
Unravelling the information
Managing restricted OKR visibility was the main hurdle for the partner organization, which wanted more control & flexibility as opposed to the traditional way of keeping OKRs publicly visible. Due to the nature of some goals, the organization chose to have them restricted to a specific set of users or teams while the overall public goals remained accessible to everyone.
Approaching a flexible way

They can set a wide range of visibility options too - From keeping the OKR public to making them visible to a set of users of teams.
Executing for success
In addition to the solution asked by the partner organization, UpRaise went a step ahead & enhanced a couple of configurations in the app to control the OKR visibility even in the hirarchy view. Due to the complexity involved, the task was a challenging one to execute - but the team managed to come through once again for the partners.
