Microsoft Viva Goals for Achieving targets

Viva Goals is one of the most powerful tools in Microsoft’s recent Viva platform. There is also great potential for team development and integration within Microsoft Teams.

Just released in August 2022, Viva Goals is still fresh and relatively unknown to most people. That’s why we want to help you get to know Microsoft’s best productivity tool yet! Viva Goals is perfect for any business to boost their workflow and achieve targets.

What Is Microsoft Viva Goals?

Microsoft Viva Goals is a target setting solution that helps your team reach new heights and unlock their full potential.

Using the OKR (Objectives and Key Results) framework, Viva enables organisations to track the progress of their teams. This means your company can work much more easily and efficiently to achieve your goals – Viva creates a workflow that is easy to work with for both employees and employers.

With Viva Goals you can:

  • Assign your team members to different tasks and goals.
  • List those goals, as well as your organisation’s key goals and objectives.
  • Display visual indicators of how on track you are to achieve these goals.
  • Reward success across your organisation.
  • You can set specific goals for specific teams and employees best suited for that task. By delegating work efficiently, employees can easily see what they need to work on and their progress on that task.

You can find Viva Goals in Microsoft Teams, as long as you have access to Viva Goals or Viva Suite. This integration makes it easy to incorporate Viva into your daily workflow and introduce your team to the OKR Framework without causing confusion or stress.

What Is The OKR Framework?

OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) is a framework used to clearly set and define goals and record their results. By doing this, you can help your team reach their full potential and motivate them towards a realistic goal.

This framework breaks down a key objective into chunks that can be achieved to progress and assigns them to teams/employees.

Unlike KPI (Key Performance Indicator) Frameworks – which measure individual employee performance – OKRs help motivate employees and teams to achieve goals as a unit.

This gives a tangible goal to help them understand what they are working towards, rather than worrying about arbitrary performance goals.
