Relevance is one of the four key Lean Research principles.

Relevant research has clear value to stakeholders and addresses priority issues and questions for research subjects, study communities, as well as donors and decision-makers. Research findings are understandable and accessible to research subjects, practitioners, and policymakers. Research studies and results are framed in ways that can inform action and decision-making at various levels of authority, and stakeholders commit to use findings to inform action.
