Lessons learned

Lessons Learned

Leadership, leadership, leadership!

Gaining and sustaining momentum takes resources, time, attention

Need to “get out there” to meet with teams and be willing to invest time and resources

Use fewer pieces of data, presented in a consistent way to keep attention and interest

Leadership!
