Strategic planning and execution are part of Agenda’s core DNA. Sometimes we are out front; other times we live in the tactical shadows. But at all times we are fundamentally hard-wired to solve problems and help our clients win – no matter the environment, no matter the sector and no matter how victory is defined.
