As new graduates join the growing network, the collective knowledge and enthusiasm expands, creating a real movement across the country based on shared passion for improvement and a commitment to spreading the skills, tools and techniques so that quality, service improvement and re-design really does become ‘that is how we do things round here’ everywhere.
