We started by making a survey to all Hubs about these topics. It was near Christmas, that is why the festive theme. ;-) Huge thanks to everyone contributing to it! Then started organizing the information and writing from my own experience, as well as asking more questions to other experienced people in the network.
The result is a chapter to provide information about the key issues to tackle in this area, what each term implies and involves, a checklist with what teams need to consider regarding the different stages of a Hub, best practices as well as emergent ones of operating Hubs already, and resources that other HUBs have shared to further their learning. The objective was not to define every concept there mentioned, as that information can be sought in general management education and literature, but highlight what is relevant for a team when, the learnings from Hubs along the way and emergent practices we can explore together in the future.
