“Who depends on him and whom he depends on” is essential for employees to understand in order to bring about improvement and continuous improvement, because one must be equipped with the knowledge of why, how and who the change effects in order to take ownership.  

William Deming, a well-known statistician, believes that intertwined in all aspects of improvement is the concept of understanding in order to improve. His theory of profound knowledge is based on the principle that organizations are composed of a system of interrelated processes and people and improvement depends on understanding and learning about your system in order to improve it.
