Many companies spend too much time and money working on the wrong problems.

So we work hard to identify the right problems from the start. Using an approach called D.A.C.E. (Discovery, Analysis, Creativity, and Execution), BerardiGroup is certain that –through thoughtfulness and thoroughness – we’ve covered all bases and asked the right questions before jumping into solution mode. Working through a model like D.A.C.E. can happen more quickly than you think.
