@bd808 I don't know how you all feel about this, but the rule of thumb I am following in Research-Programs (currently being populated) is to create just the program and objective level, to avoid cluttering up our boards with intermediate "outcome" levels, that are relevant for the annual plan but less so for tracking/planning.
