Who we are

Consulting experts who make change happen

Clerestory was designed to be different

Your business changed in the past 20 years while consulting firms stayed the same.  Every project is still proposed with a one-size-fits-all approach.  These same firms charge by the hour with rewards for the consultants who bill the most.  That’s good for the consulting firm, but is it good for you, your project, and your company?

We knew there was a better way.  For two decades we have engaged with our clients differently.  We spend time with our prospects – at our own expense – to customize plans and proposals.  We mutually agree upon the definition of success and the time and resources needed to support the project.  Then we make change happen as quickly as possible and deliver results for a fixed fee.

Responsive, realistic, and insightful

“Fantastic to work with:  Responsive, realistic, and insightful.  What was impressive to me was our communication didn’t stop when the assessment/report was given back.  Good meaningful conversations followed.  Would recommend and work with again and again.”

Clerestory begins with a custom plan and ends with the delivery of sustainable results

We put a lot of heart into our work.  Our clients are the well-known companies you interact with on the job, in your homes, when you eat, and where you shop.  Like all big companies, they’ve had disappointing results from software-first IT consultancies and large accounting firms that treat change management as an afterthought.

Clients say Clerestory is the partner they always hoped to find.  We help global organizations achieve sustainable success by focusing on the people who make change happen.
