Overview of the Action Management Module

Action Management is a tool that allows you to define and to record the method by which change can be implemented to correct conditions, intent, or behaviors through Strategy Actions and Recommended Actions.

Note: Throughout this documentation, we use the term Recommendations to refer generically to any record that belongs to the Recommendations family or any of its subfamilies. When it is necessary to distinguish between Recommendation records that belong to different families, we use the specific family names.
