 +##​ Ingredients for success
 +
 +The following will be needed to maximise the chances for success for the Way Ahead initiative in general and the London Hub in particular:
 +
 +* **A compelling story of change**: The narrative about the Way Ahead needs to be simple and capable of winning hearts and minds.
 +* **Actions which can make a difference**:​ A ‘Now, Soon, Later’ approach would allow for ‘baby steps’ and early wins as well as long term ambition.
 +* **Working with the willing and the brave**: An emphasis on building a positive ‘coalition of the willing’ would be more effective than dragging reluctant partners to the table, and a clearer and more specific ‘offer’ for prospective public and private partners will be needed.
 +* **Building on the best**: The Way Ahead will not succeed unless there is recognition that there is good practice to sustain and build upon at local, borough and London-wide levels, rather than adopting a ‘year zero’ approach.
 +* **Championing community expertise**:​ Existing and new models of support and engagement which are grown from within local communities,​ and communities of interest or identity, should be championed, while avoiding the tendency to segment Londoners into narrow categories.
 +* **Building networks**: Creating distributed models for collaboration and leadership will allow insight and skills to be shared and unlikely alliances formed, taking full advantage of on-line platforms.
 +* **Agile working**: Small teams, able to adapt and respond quickly, can reduce the ‘diseconomies of scale’ which larger institutions often succumb to.
 +* **A strong and simple brand**: A new brand (eg ‘Connecting Londoners’) will be needed which can be applied to the London Hub and also to other activities connected to the Way Ahead ambition.
 +* **Proving and improving**:​ An impact evaluation strategy would be built in from the outset, which includes elements of co-production with London communities,​ which can tell an honest story of what is being achieved, win allies and investors, and stimulate action as needed.
