Lessons Learned
1. Transparency leads to Competitiveness : Governance matters 2. Work-in-Progress is no longer good enough 3. Importance of Execution and Delivery 4. Teamwork is required : No More Silos 5. We must focus on Multiple Fronts (no single variable) 6. The Competition never sleeps 7. The bar always rises. We move up a weight class and meet larger, stronger competition 8. Speed-to-Reform should be our new mantra 9. Maintaining Momentum is important (gain speed) 10. Embedding and institutionalizing change / reform for the long run is important. This has become a key concern.
