Introducing an improved OKR experience for Jira Align

Hi Community! 

My name is Sam Ugulava and I am a Senior Product Manager working on Jira Align. I spent my first ~2 years at Atlassian working on Confluence Cloud, but made the move over to Enterprise Agility in October where I now lead our Planning & Execution group.

One of the first projects I took over was our public roadmap commitment to improve our OKR experience. This enhancement has been part of an Early Access Program (EAP), but is now available to all customers. 

I know updating training material and implementing changes like this across your organization takes a lot of work, so please reach out to your TAM if you would like to have this feature turned on for your instance. 

The new OKR hub gives users an updated experience for creating and viewing OKRs by bringing goals and OKRs together and showing the relationships between them and their children objectives.

We've made enhancements to our table, including the ability to customize the column widths so it's easy for you to view the most important information to you. If you leave or refresh the page, your table will look the same when you come back now that we've added local saving into the grid.

Now that we've reached this milestone, I'd like to give a preview of our plans for further enhancements to Objectives overall. We have added a new item to the public roadmap with a commitment to making it quick and easy to create and edit more types of objectives, and track their progress and context. 

This work will be broken down into three milestones:

Track objectives
Improve the table and slide out, removing the noise, adding missing data (like SAFe objectives, milestone objectives, etc), and making it easy for users to find and view the most important information so that they can track progress against their goals.

Create & edit objectives
Make it quick and easy to create and edit all types of objectives by addressing friction points with APIs, import, and manual workflows

Understand objectives
Improve the way objective owners and stakeholders communicate by providing opportunities to share context while scoring objectives and surfacing the information stakeholders need to make decisions to help them achieve their goals.

I'm excited to go on this journey with you all and look forward to partnering with you over the coming quarters as we take on these next milestones!

Hi @Karan Shah , 

an OKR stands for Objectives and Key Results, a framework that helps companies set and achieve ambitious goals. It involves setting specific, measurable, and time-bound objectives, and breaking them down into key results that are tracked and evaluated regularly.

If you're interested in learning more about OKRs, here are a few helpful resources:

1) "Measure What Matters" by John Doerr - a book that provides a comprehensive overview of OKRs. Here is a dedicated website with useful resources.

2) Atlassian's great comparison of OKR vs KPI framework.

3) OKR examples for developers and software engineers

@Sam Ugulava Would you have any insight into how someone could implement an approvals process in Jira Align.   We have a large scale implementation at Cisco ONEx and need to route from Intake to the Epics Portfolio level and need to approve epics prior to handing them to engineering teams to break down features/epics in Jira Cloud.

Do you have any roadmap for a feature set in Jira Align upcoming over the next year?  I'm aware of the safe harbor caveats.
