Let's table this discussion so we can do a deep dive analysis on the due diligence performed on the work product to identify all low hanging fruit which is most impactful leadership and then circle back/touch base with the project team who has the bandwidth to implement changes which will take the work product to the next level in order to provide the most value-add and move the needle.

"let's cascade this out" "I'll put out some feelers on this one" "let's run it up the flagpole" "let's be all over this" "that looks like it's going to grow legs" "I know the graph says that but are we really saying that"
