Since 1996, Gradus has accumulated a long track record of success, with over 300 projects for 150 clients, both in Brazil and 25 other countries.
We aim to change the way companies are managed by working directly with companies’ executives on high impact, high return initiatives which yield measurable results.
Through the implementation of our unique methodologies, which include organizational redesign, matrix budgeting implementation, mergers and acquisitions, supply chain restructuring, route to market, and commercial planning, these projects lead to significant and continuous productivity gains.
Our experienced and highly qualified team works tirelessly to establish a close partnership with our clients. This close level of support is amplified through the use of proprietary applications and software.
Gradus also selectively works on pro-bono projects with NGOs and other non-profit organizations aligned with our values.
Our mission is to help companies obtain significant and measurable productivity improvements. We aim to be executives’ first choice in our areas of expertise due to our work’s consistent quality and high level of sophistication.
