With a successful history, reaching many milestones past years, the client went in to a 2020 filled with opportunities.

Specific strategy elements, such as a step-by-step implementation roadmap, as well as detailed responsibilities was determined. Essentially, ARC Consulting also set up a strategic planning pattern for the company to execute over the long haul.
