Implementation focus

During Q2 IDH focused on following up on implementation timelines, to ensure all factories and brands made progress on completing the work-plans, and resolving any bottlenecks with the service providers or factory alignment. The results of this can been seen in the improved implementation completeness graphs, which show the progress made since the Q1 report.
