With consultants working primarily in a project-based environment, many consulting teams remain an outsider to the business or team without engaging with the people, history or culture. This leads to superficial quick-fixes that don’t address the root causes and don’t lead to measurable outcomes. Furthermore, many consultants copy-paste their projects with many clients killing possible ideas and depriving them of potential innovation. Finally, the quick-fix approach causes more problems to emerge in the future and if knowledge transfer or capacity building was not conducted, a consultant is needed again.
At WIDE, we looked around and thought enough! Enough to consultants that solve one problem and create a dozen others. Enough to external dependency rather than fostering internal capability. Enough focus on the quick fixes and short-term gains. It's time for a change.
By focusing on deeply understanding your people, culture and problem we uncover root causes and avoid quick fixes. Since we believe each client and challenge is unique, we design your solution ensuring effectiveness and creativity. Finally, we ensure that we sustain our efforts by transferring knowledge, systems, and accountability so that even though you'll want us back, you won't need us to.
