Who We Are
Accord 3.0 provides strategic consulting services to engage in complex, multi-party problem-solving to tackle difficult problems in areas such as partnership development, facilitation, planning, training, conflict assessment, and management strategies.
Our seasoned team – composed of respected professionals in planning, law, business, governmental affairs, public policy, environmental policy, communications, and finance – brings a multi-sector perspective, informed expertise, and a suite of comprehensive solutions and refined tools to each client. We like to call it “21st century problem-solving.”
We are just as comfortable with analysis, strategy, and investment as we are with process engineering and implementation. Contact us and start the conversation.
