‘The staff said, ‘We’ve been wanting to do this for ages, but we’ve been stuck because of the process.’ And we said, let’s change the process; let’s remap the process; let’s look at it in a different way. And the staff came up with some fantastic ways of doing that because nothing was off the table.’
