We’re on a journey…

After 1990, the globalisation started taking shape in countries like India and global codes, standards, certifications & benchmarks were introduced to Indian businesses; few by choice, most by compulsion. Industries had no other choice to become more competitive & sustainable. The words – quality, safety, environmental protection, social responsibility, productivity, business excellence were all around. But industries were not really sure how to start their journey towards excellence. Organisations were looking for solutions for sustainable development. The journey from profitable business & responsible business started.

Confluence of minds & passion: The Consultivo management team

 

(L-R)   Dr Ruma Gomes, Madhabi Guha, Saikat Basu and Santanu Ghosh

More than 10 years back, we had a dream

The stepping stone called Verde

The journey continues…

Our journey began when Saikat was working with one of the world’s largest management system certification bodies and was groomed as an assessor, trainer & technical expert in many management areas like Quality, Environment, Occupational Health & Safety, Strategic Planning, Human Resource and Project Management. He became the jack of all, master (?) of a few. But this lead to a change – a positive change.

Saikat’s vision changed and he started realizing micro to macro, technology to business, process to people, problems to solutions. This lead him to the new road of entrepreneurship in 2009 by starting an advisory & consulting organisation which was fundamentally built to provide customised solutions to organisation’s business risk.

“As the founder & CEO of Verde, I still struggle to meet the daily requirements of the business, as well as corporate growth and development. I am in the process of inculcating a value system and a long-standing vision to be the best in the industry. I’ve been fortunate to meet amazing colleagues in all the organisations I have worked for and the organisation heI have built. My people luck is always enviable. Deep in my heart, I believe, whatever tiny contribution I could make to the industry is due to the brilliant, dedicated and kind people around me.”

Saikat Basu, 2012

 

Madhabi hounds her skills in management systems, people development, behavioural sciences, research activities & project management.

During the course of time, there was a need for a new-age technology-driven solution provider which will cater to the growing & changing need of not only the businesses but also civil society organisations & developing banks & government as well – expanding the working horizon.

In February 2016, Consultivo was co-founded by Saikat & Madhabi.

Consultivo is a management advisory and consulting firm helping global businesses in the areas of Sustainability, Business Excellence & Risk Management – both in strategic and operational level.
