“It’s not something that you implement and then you’re finished with. You have to keep thinking about it… keep talking about it. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, and you probably are going to have to change the tactics along the way. It’s about that re-evaluation process.” – Fiona Best, Vic Hub Regional Director & CEO of Vic Hub NW Broadacre Node lead, BCG
