We offer to our clients a unique positioning in Transformation Consulting

Beyond being consultants in strategy and organization we are co-architects and agents of your company specific transformation

OUR HISTORY

Born in 1999 in São Paulo, Crescendo was established to address clients need that wanted to achieve complex transformation processes combining simultaneously soft and hard approaches.

Firstly in Brazil, in Latin America as a second step, and then in more than 16 countries (Europe, North America, Asia, Africa) we have developed and applied a specific Transformation approach based on 6 steps:

1. Systemic and in-depth listening of the eco-system of our clients to identify the real and unbiased diagnosis

2. Challenge paradigms bringing external vision

3. Promote Leadership alignment  and capitalize on collective intelligence to drive transformation

4. Co-design with the client’s team the strategic vision and co-prototype the roadmap

5. Energize people with out-of-box thinking mindset and empathy  and innovate on methods to accelerate transformation

6. Implement a structured transformation governance and continuous improvement process to make things happen and to sustain results in the mid/long term.

We continuously search and improve our tools incorporating state of the art knowledge and methods that arose in the last decade from Startups, Fab Labs, Open Innovation, social sciences and management new approaches and theories
