"...if you have a well-coordinated team, you can come up with solutions that you can then apply in your city. I think the comparison district was very key in illustrating that fact, because we got two districts that were of similar sizes, the same resources, but very different coverage performances. So, it illustrated good leadership as very key when it comes to performance."
