  2. Value Realization • Near-term • Short-term
  3. Communication • Story-telling • Make it simple enough (think 5th grade level 😊) • Ongoing communication (Agile Delivery)
  4. Expand the Footprint/Business Development • Your analytics and dashboard can be more valuable to others • Build on the success.
