At WSS, its the long view that counts most.

WSS focuses on long-term solutions that make sense from the standpoint of all involved parties.  Sometimes, there is a short-term price to be accommodated (e.g., greater cost, lower penalties, longer time frames, departures from policy) but the outcomes are more certain to work well, persist, and create better projects, permits, settlements, and relationships.  If you put the effort into carefully melding the science, the regulation and policy, the business and financial aspects, and the personal interests, better things can happen.
