Where are you? Where do you want to go?
How do you get there?
These are the fundamental questions
in economic development

The primary disciplines of WCM are strategic assessment, economic development, market analysis and business competitiveness. Primary strengths are in the collection and analysis of data to derive information, the dissemination of this information in a cogent and practical manner, the development of a realizable vision and the synthesis of strategies to achieve the goals. The facilitation of diverse groups to form a cohesive and unified effort is also a key tool used in much of the work of WCM.

We've all heard that a "consultant is someone who uses your watch to tell you the time".

WCM does not even do that much.

Instead, we simply clean the glass so that you can tell the time. After all, isn't that what you really need?


Business Principles

At WCM we don't tell you what you want to hear;
we tell you what you need to hear!

Trust is the root of our success
Our existing Clients come back to us yet we recognise that new Clients have not experienced the WCM business ethic. The best way to gain trust is to first show trust and WCM makes that easy for Clients - just ask us how.

Simple but not easy
Most issues are simple but not easy. Invariably, avoiding these tough issues complicates the matter, wastes time and resources and, in the end, the tough issues remain. WCM looks for these tough, root issues; then we work with the Client to design effective root solutions.

The sum of all opinions approximates fact
WCM gathers opinions from all sources and then distils them into the root issues to which all can agree. This forms the solid foundation essential to launch a successful project. We follow this maxim of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle:

"It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has all of the facts; insensibly,
one begins to twist facts to suit theories rather than theories to fit facts"

As the target moves, so does WCM
Initiatives start with a plan and the best laid plans must adjust to the evolving situation. WCM does this automatically, in concert with the Client, as the need arises.
