Assess what's working and what's not on a regular basis
It's important to check in after every iteration to see where you're excelling and where you're falling behind.
Brainstorm solutions to fix problem areas
Make sure someone is accountable for implementing and reporting on changes, so you can brainstorm again if the problem isn't fixed.
