Triggered by the success of transforming the ordinary to an extraordinary at DuPont in India, I parted from this multinational to be on an entrepreneur mode and formed my consulting firm "Centre for Excellence in Organization" in December 1999. My passion for creating High Performing Organization and strong belief in handholding approach resulted in emergence of a new consulting model 'Partnering in Progress'.
The journey started with the spiritual support of my spouse and with a single member team at Chennai, undeterred by no financial support, thanks to the team, today we have outfits and business verticals in India, Malaysia and Middle East.
Drive to excellence was through sheer exploration and explosion. Belief in unlearning and youth power gave way to having unconventional team members with grit and patience, critiquing and evolving and commitment to execution, and that became the edifice at CEO.
In the consulting world, CEO is becoming a synonym for starting the initiative and also enduring the institutionalization. Every consulting assignment added depth; new learning's and process perfection. Family businesses and unsung heroes who made it big further honed the consulting partnership as 'END TO END SOLUTONS' provider.
CEO as an organization is committed to the entrepreneurial growth of the clients, employees and the shareholder's value enhancement. CEO is equally committed to social partnerships, enabling the disadvantaged and mainstreaming them into equal citizenship. As we are stepping into the Fourteenth year of operations, reflections have resulted in redefinition, refocus and redirection.
In the Organization Development arena, our focus will be more and more on creating high performing organizations, self managed & self directed work teams, building industry relevant skills through public private partnership - earn and learn model, building competencies, enabling every constituent of the organizations through coaching and mentoring, enduring quality initiatives, empowering and ensuring internalization.
In the Recruitment arena, innovative alternatives to talent hunting and career anchoring will be the focus as globally industries are growing through phenomenal growth phase and therefore the challenge in managing and retaining the talent. Hence the focus will be on "RETENTRITION" (Retaining and Attriting) through customized and collaboration approach.
In the IT automation arena, our solutions will focus on developing human resource applications that augment Organizational HR Strategy. We will support process automation of all our initiatives and be value added support to the customers. CEO as a group organization is highly focused on research and development and the next 5 years we can show a quantum leap in this arena. Creating business partners and network entrepreneurs will continue to be the motto of CEO group of companies.
