Latitude 4-40 Consulting provides business and corporate strategy, planning and design services.  We are a boutique company and work with people to understand contextual complexities, prevent or pre-empt problems (rather than symptoms) and/or provide innovative, sustainable solutions or interventions.

We are also involved in a social enterprise known as the Latitude Knowledge Exchange Initiative (LAKXTM).

Our domains of involvement are:

  • Organisations (public and private)- those who provide services and goods
  • Community- this includes organised or informal communities as collectives or individuals
  • The Built Environment- the environment in which most activities takes place


Organisations and government provide services/goods to the community such as:

  • education
  • health
  • housing
  • transport infrastructure
  • regulation


Communities have many and various needs, such as:

  • receiving services/goods from government and the private sector
  • working as communities for common good
  • learning as communities


Built Environment

The built environment is comprised of many and differing elements such as:

  • buildings
  • open spaces
  • transport infrastructure
  • human activities
  • service provision


Organisations, communities and the built environment operate in eco-systems that are comprised of a multiplicity of parts and which interact with one another. They form a complex system that often creates or leads to complex problems and issues. identifying problems rather than symptoms is therefore key.
