Drawn from a cross-section of careers in energy & environmental engineering, chemical industries and financial sectors, our core team brings to clients diagnostic, analytical and academic experience - unique in its balance, breadth and objectivity.

Our Beliefs

This has enabled us to:

  • Help our clients look at their challenges holistically.
  • Think of multiple solutions.
  • Set realistic goals.
  • Adopt the most appropriate tool to achieve these goals.

For any intervention to succeed, two most important factors are:

  • 1) How deeply the top management is committed to it and
  • 2) How strongly the organization relates with it, understands it and implements it.

In the final analysis, what matters most are sustainable results.
Chiron’s approach is to help organizations make substantial and lasting change through:

  • Building a workforce that is productive, vibrant, lean and flexible
  • Developing management thinking and capability to create an environment that nurtures innovation & quality
  • Set realistic goals.

Even after the completion of our assignment, if required

  • Chiron can continue to handhold and assess the organization’s effectiveness
  • Look at indicators of current performance vis-à-vis expected performance
  • Whether adequate investments are made now to ensure the organization’s sustainable competitive advantage in the future
