WHAT DEFINES CSQUARED

A

t C2 Consulting Firm, we go by many names: C2, C Squared, and more, but there’s one thing that stands firm – our vision.

We believe that – at the bottom of the abyss of your business lies a vast well of data and untapped resources just waiting to be surfaced. This data personifies the potential of a business; the larger the gap between the surface and the knowledge, the great the opportunity to regain control of your future. 

We also believe that:

  • Smarter organizations invest in iterative solutions for the continuous betterment of their people, processes, and products or services.
  • There’s a lot to learn from challenges that adjacent industries have overcome.
  • The collection of and access to qualitative and quantitative data is paramount.
  • Innovation initiatives like digital transformation can do more than disrupt an organization; they can frame an entire foundation for a sounder, more viable future.
  • Viable strategic plans have a 360 degree view of areas impacted by implementation, along with dedicated staff to facilitate the transtion at every level.
  • A stratecution layer is critical to bridging the gap between strategy and execution so that CXO initiatives don’t get lost in translation.

Abraham Maslow:

“If the only tool you have is a hammer,
you tend to see every problem as a nail.”
