Objectives should be flexible enough so employees can freely adjust, revise, or even abandon what they’re doing as their work evolves and as priorities change. Research from Kuvass, Buch & Dysvik, all academics in the field of organizational psychology, demonstrated a link between lower work performance and people seeing their goals as unmovable and non-negotiable. That being said, if you need to make a change to your objective, including objective owner, objective type, adding in another key result, etc, you can do that by editing the objective.
If you are an account admin, the objective owner, or the objective owner's manager (if your company has this enabled), you can edit the objective by default. For additional permissions around managing objectives, see this article.
