And, fourth, emphasis on published materials to demonstrate competence continues a practice that began forty years ago, including four years in graduate school at Northwestern University (MS, PhD), three years on faculty at the University of Kansas, seven years at the Ministry of State for Urban Affairs in the Government of Canada, and 26 years on faculty at the University of Ottawa.
In all those positions emphasis was on publishing the results of evidence-based exploratory and confirmatory research, and having that research reviewed by all manner of interested parties in government, business, academia, the media, professional organizations, as well as by judicial bodies, community groups, and citizens. Wellar Consulting Inc. continues that practice.
