Our values and mission define and guide us.
They reflect why we exist and set us apart as a firm.
We are committed to upholding our values and mission through the work that we do. We are not only seeking to illuminate the complexity issue, but also set the bar for how a consulting firm works with clients to address this set of issues.
We are passionate about our work and recognize the opportunity it represents. We are committed to excellence in all we do and will go above and beyond to practice our craft. We embrace the artists’ tenacity, passion, and orientation of purpose in all we do.
We believe in the power of ideas. We prize the development and application of new ideas to existing and emerging issues facing organizations today. We exist in part to contribute to the collective knowledge of humanity. We impact the world through our ideas and the new frontiers they bring.
Above all, to achieve our mission for our clients, our people, and our world, we prize the ability to create something where nothing was before. We embrace the spirit of the pioneer, the appetite for risk, the willingness to lean in and put all on the line, and the reluctance to play it safe.
We believe complexity is the defining issue facing organizations today. We exist to help companies and other organizations thrive in this Age of Complexity. We do this by rethinking traditional approaches to strategy and execution, and by working in close partnership with our clients to deliver transformative results.
Complexity—the defining issue
Complexity is the defining issue of the age. In fact, companies today are better understood and managed as complex systems. As such, previously held notions around efficiency, scale, growth, and profitability are no longer valid. Companies need new perspective and new approaches. WP&C was founded to meet this task, and help companies thrive in the Age of Complexity.
The fact that we’re living in a complex world means that the old strategies no longer suffice. Companies need fresh insight. For the last decade, WP&C has led the way rethinking traditional approaches to strategy and execution, both as thought-leaders and practitioners. We help our clients attack systemic, entrenched issues, using proven impactful methodologies, yielding dramatic impacts on profitability, growth, and risk.
The good news is that given the nature of the issue, addressing complexity is a transformative opportunity, either through boosting profits, freeing up resources for growth, or creating new capabilities that reduce risk. To do this demands a close collaboration with our clients—a joint effort supported by frequent discussion, rapid iteration of strategies rooted in rigorous analysis, and an execution plan that cuts through the noise to create change.
