Recommendations for user rights

Administrator

This is the user rights level for people who are responsible for the whole process of using FIBRES in your organization, such as head of foresight, trend manager, innovation manager, strategy lead,  or head of business. We recommend having two Administrators at a minimum.

Trend manager

A Trend manager is typically a person who actually works on Signals but even more on Signal clusters and Trends. Perhaps this is a role in your process also with responsibilities for trend impact assessments, and for facilitating the work of others.

The main difference to an Administrator is that a Trend manager can only invite new users for Trend scout and Read only roles.

Trend scout

This is the perfect user rights level for people responsible for horizon scanning and spotting of new Signals.

Read only

This is the correct user rights level for those who are not expected to give their active contribution to the trend or strategy work but who you want to keep updated on what is going on.
