WiFi Sponsors ECG Management Consultants http://www.ecgmc.com/ Through more than four decades of experience, we’ve learned that successful problem solving requires deep industry knowledge and expertise, rigorous data and analytics, strategic foresight, political and organizational savvy, and most important of all — practical solutions that get implemented. A thoughtful solution or strategic plan without implementation becomes a road map to nowhere. And that’s exactly why our team prides itself on balancing innovation with practicality in all that we do. We bridge the gap between strategic thinking and implementation with realistic action plans and tactical recommendations. This approach allows us to stretch our clients’ thinking while ensuring that final deliverables will move the organization toward achieving long-term goals and objectives.
