Hi Tom,

“A Partner has a tension that he needs strategic information from the Super Circle to fulfill the purpose of one of his roles” is a constraint that limits the Sub-Circle to be removed within the Super-Circle, which is the exact accountability of the Rep Link.

However, I'd try to solve the tension directly in the Sub-Circle instead of escalating the issue, in order to build a more “ autonomous” option. Note that "Bringing information to the circle” is not a LL accountability". Consequently, LL is not due to give information... so may be there is a lack of role somewhere.

For instance, you may create in the Sub-Circle a "Strategic information" role whose accountability could be "Bringing all strategic information needed by the circle"... or even directly add this accountability to the Rep Link Role.

What about?
