A parent is a page or category with at least one child. A child is a page or category that includes the [[Category:something]] tag. Below is an explanation of the relationship between different levels of content.

  2. Category - items at this second level have a parent (a level 1 group of categories (eg: Operations planning)
  3. Outcome or result within a category or group of categories (eg: Improve user experience) An outcome or result can either be a page or category, depending
  4. Page - specific strategy linked to an outcome or result
  5. Sub-page - additional information linked to a specific strategy (page), but not an outcome
