    Wow, very clear and densely packed session on the constitutive elements that comprise the The Strategy. I was very impressed by the way in which the material provided me the essentialness of a mobile app and how the app must be viewed as a living and ongoing mechanism that has to be designed to generate and expand to stay viable, useful and critically necessary.
