    Are these words interchangeable?

    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to ask if the following words (applied, implement and put in practice) are completely interchangeable in the sentence:

    The strategy has not yet been presented but it seems to be applied/implemented/put in practice already.

    The intended meaning: consultants have developed a strategy for the Company, the strategy has not been officially presented but it appears to be implemented.

    ..put into practice.

    However, in this rather formal sentence I would have gone for "implemented".
