"Procurement reform remains one of the biggest challenges and its success is vital to ensure that hard-won gains do not unravel.

If you lose momentum in this process, you are done for."
I read the above Opinion piece by Liam Fox, the former defence Secretary of State, in today's Times (p.20). The comment was specifically about Ministry of Defence procurement but I felt it was so transferable to procurement improvement, in general, it just had to be shared.
