Our mission is to put people at the heart of business
"This notion of a conscious and long-term approach to value creation — when put into proper application — serves long-term shareholders extraordinarily well and has the capacity to favorably reshape the public’s perception of corporate America."
Founder, Chairman & CEO of Panera Bread
We believe that business growth and doing the right thing aren’t mutually exclusive. We would even say that growth and doing the right thing (especially when customers aren’t looking) are the new benchmark. This perspective isn’t unique to us–today’s breakout brands get it too. When businesses balance the needs of their quarterly goals alongside the long-term needs of their employees, customers, and even the community–they’ll gain their sustainble competitive advantage.
We may have our head in the clouds, but we also have our feet on the ground. We are–and always will be–an external consulting agency. As such, we know corporations aren’t going to invite us in to change the trajectory of shareholder value. But, for those organizations that are looking to put people at the heart of their business and need the help, we’re here to help you succeed.
Putting our formula to work
We were founded in summer of 2016. Since then we’ve been working with some of Boston’s best businesses to bring the needs of people closer to our clients. We worked with Panera’s cafe managers to launch delivery services. We helped establish the digital excellence practice at Biogen–a global leader in pharma. And we helped Dunkin’–New England’s most iconic brand–rebrand mobile commerce. Along the way, we learned a lot about what it means to truly combine business, design, and delivery excellence into the core of our DNA. The result was a mix of talent you can’t find anywhere else...
Human-Centered Business Consultants
We don't see organizations as a mix of boxes and arrows split over a hundred-page Powerpoint. Rather, we see organizations as a series of complex relationships between people that are working towards a common goal...and our work reflects that.
We've stripped away the theater and ego of traditional innovation firms to create a practical Design Thinking methodology. The result has been a design capability that is dedicated to finding the right balance between the needs of consumers, business, and the community.
A Focus on Delivery Excellence
We've elevated the role of program management at CE+Co. Our ability to work with the highest levels of leadership and bring ideas from inception to pilot requires a level of rigor and planning that only senior program managers can deliver.
