A few of the more interesting questions we answer for our clients:
Should we consolidate our roster of agencies, or is it better to create a village?
How do you structure your agency roster, particularly to work with an in-house team?
What is the best way to measure how effectively our roster of agencies is operating?
Operating with many agencies in a roster can be distracting. There are multiple contracts, relationships and scopes of work or services to manage. Your agencies may find it hard to work together, resulting in disjointed, weakened strategies and outputs. Elements of operation and process might be sub-optimal and not generating enough value. And some of your agencies may not even be fit for purpose.
Our extensive and multi-disciplinary agency experience is, quite simply, second to none. In agency roster alignment work, we take an in depth look at your current roster – its structure, performance, and effectiveness.
Using detailed discovery and diagnosis, we assess the roster in context of best practice and make change recommendations tailored to specific commercial objectives and vision for how things need to work now and into the future.
We can build a bespoke roster model to implement or offer a selection of ‘tried and trusted’ roster models we have built for others.
You can then choose to implement the chosen roster model yourself.
Or we can work with you to implement the changes, whether that be communicating findings to your executive, finding new agencies, shaping new documentation (scope of works, engagement or process agreements outlining changes in deliverables for your existing agencies), negotiating the commercial terms, or structuring initiatives that will enable you and your agencies to execute on the success vision we’ve developed.
