Looking For Growth? We Can Help You Build A Solid Foundation For Your Business.
This Is Our Story... 
Stradigo is a group of senior consultants and a junior who decided to go digital.
We are a startup boutique of experienced senior partner strategy consultants. Together we have over a hundred years of experience in consulting. We have worked with numerous strategy consulting cases in all kinds of industries and in companies of all sizes. 
The longer we work the more critical we have become to the way things are done in our industry. Management Teams are exhausted, there are hundreds of pages of material and very few even remember what the strategy is. We think that strategic planning is done way too difficult. That is why we want to make things more simple - we mean REALLY simple. It all boils down to the quality of thinking.
We have developed simple strategic planning methods in our face-to-face consultation. As time went by it became apparent that the same questions and issues seem to appear again and again. Then we got an idea! Digitalization applies to everything, also consultation. Why couldn't we write questions that tackle issues we constantly encounter? It's obvious that a solution-oriented and practical hands-on aproach could be offered in a digital format online. So - we founded Stradigo in 2015.
The idea is to offer several simple tools for different phases of the Strategic Planning process with a price of a fraction of F2F consultation.
