Crealisatio is a rather young company having been founded in 2017.
However, its founder, Jörg Funk, brings a wealth of experience to the table stemming from 30 years in R&D, consulting, management, board and startup companies.
The company was born out of the desire to provide companies with a support option that maximizes their own resources and draws on our experience and seniority rather than on an army of arms and legs.
Differently from large consulting organizations, we support our clients with hands-on senior dedication to lead programs and projects. We may complement our senior dedicated team with a small team of associated consultants (1-4 consultants).
THE INGREDIENTS OF SUCCESS
Senior project leadership is not a synonym for grey hair and dominant voice.
It’s about bringing experience to the table in a way people feel compelled to be open for support.
It's about applying business judgement to pay attention to the important details and leave out unimportant laborious tasks.
It's about disposing of different methodologies to tailor approaches to the task at hand.
And ultimately it's about being humble to take people on a journey together because complex projects are by definition a group effort.
