EDC is Canada's export credit agency, with the remit of supporting and developing Canada's export trade by aiding companies on an international scale. Though a government body, EDC operates 'at arm's length from the government,' which allows it to be more nimble in its strategic planning and its execution. We sat down with David Bhamjee, vice president of strategy at EDC, to discuss the notion that company culture should be cultivated to facilitate strategy, as well as the differences between reactive 'tactics' and the end goal that is 'strategy'.
