“We planned and strategized more deeply as a team because we had a framework and tools by which to do that. […] When we’re mapping our networks really intentionally and thinking about where we have power and influence, I think we are able to plan more deeply and more effectively.” – Eric, Indiana Office of Public Health Performance Management
