Microsoft Viva Goals Debuts as a Management Solution for OKR

Microsoft Viva Goals – which is now generally available – provides management tools for the Objectives and Key Results (OKR) framework.


Viva is an employee platform with numerous components from which customers can pick. The latest of those components is Goals, which the company says is now generally available.

According to Microsoft, Viva Goals provides a management suite for the Objectives and Key Results (OKR) framework. OKR is popular with major corporations, and Viva Goals will help admins track goals and progress on OKR.

In a Tech Community post to announce the move to general availability, Microsoft discusses the core deliverables of Viva Goals:

  • Creating clarity: With one centralized source of truth for goal setting, monitoring progress, and assessing success across your organization, you create clarity for your team, connect daily work to outcomes and align at all levels 
  • Focusing teams on impact, not output: Shift focus from effort and activity to impact and outcomes, share progress across your organization with customizable dashboards that turn data into insights, and stay agile
    at scale   
  • Bringing goals into the flow of everyday work: Keep goals top-of-mind by bringing data and actions into the spaces your team is already using, like Microsoft Teams, ADO, and the most popular data and project management tools.”


Users can also bring others into the loop by sharing goals with them. There are two versions of Goals: Microsoft Viva Goals SKU and Microsoft Viva SKU. Admins can include the solution in Microsoft Teams if they have one of these licenses:

F1, F3, E3, A3, E5, A5; Office 365 F3, E1, A1, E3, A3, E5, A5; Microsoft 365 Business Basic, Business Standard, Business Premium; or Microsoft SharePoint K, Plan 1, or Plan 2 license.

Tip of the day: When Windows 10 or has issues, it's not rare to run into startup problems. Corrupted Windows files, incorrect system configuration, driver failure, or registry tweaks can all cause this issue.

Using Windows startup repair can fix boot issues caused by the most prevalent issues. Though it may seem that all is lost when you run into startup problems, it's important to try a Windows boot repair so you can at least narrow down the source of the issue. If it doesn't work, you may have to reinstall the OS or test your hardware.
