    WACOSS Consultancy Services include:

    • Governance and Management Development
      It is vital that Management Committees and Boards are aware of the principles and practice of good governance. WACOSS can review your current governance practices and develop a program to address any areas of concern. We also provide a tailored governance training session for Board and staff, to cover the five key areas of governance.
    • Development of Strategic and Business Plans
      "Where do we want to go and how will we get there"?
      Capturing this information in a strategic plan and a business plan will help you reach your goals for the future of your service, as well as ensure your organisation remains sustainable and relevant. WACOSS will work with your organisation to bring together key stakeholders, facilitate the discussion and then write a detailed, 'plain english', straightforward strategic plan for your organisation.
    • Meeting and Planning Day Facilitation
      Do you get the best out of your planning sessions? Planning days and special meetings often disappoint due to:
      • The person running the session having a vested interest in a certain outcome
      • The discussion becoming heated and conflict dominating
      • People getting off track and spending valuable time on unnecessary detail
      WACOSS can help you achieve your purpose in any group sessions which address planning or other major issues. We have experienced and skilled facilitators who will:
      • Provide a neutral facilitator to give all parties an equal voice
      • Keep the conversation flowing and conflict to a constructive level
      • Keep people focused on the key issues to ensure the outcomes are met
    • Developing Policies and Procedures
      Well-developed policy and procedure manuals are an essential part of risk management, good governance and your everyday effectiveness. Our trained consultants can assist in the review, development and implementation of organisational policy.
    • Organisational Review
      The full package... Does your organisation need a full tune up or even a complete overhaul? WACOSS draws upon its expertise in the community sector and its objective position as an external consultant to identify solutions that will work for your organisation. A review report prepared by our consultants will include a process to achieve organisational change, and can be used to support any application for funding for this type of work.
