  • Location where the permission applies:

      This is best for leaders who need to monitor and lead improvement work throughout the entire organization.


    • User’s Level and Below - This means the permission would apply to Improvements from the user’s level and every level under it.

    • Only User’s Level - This means the permission would apply to improvement work done within the user’s specific level.

      This is best for users who only need to monitor and lead work done in their own unit. For example, a Lower-level manager.


    • Only User’s - This means the permission would apply to Improvements authored by the user themselves.

      This is best for users who are trained to self-monitor their improvement efforts, but who are not responsible for monitoring other people’s efforts.
