Delivering successful projects and business impact for Chicago companies since 2007.

We have been fortunate to work with many outstanding people and companies in the Chicago area. We have managed global change initiatives, delivered custom software for the pharmaceutical space and helped companies improve their operations through improved tools and process. Each of our projects spans the disciplines of strategy, process, technology and change. It is the appropriate blending of these disciplines that delivers real outcomes.

Our clients say we are different and better than other firms. They say we are authentic, transparent and that we do what we say we are going to do. We want to make them the hero.

We host several networking and special interest groups. Ask us about our 3PM group where more than 30 companies are sharing knowledge and best practices related to project, program and portfolio management approaches in business and technology.

Collectively, we are also trying to make a difference in our community. Each Centric team member contributes time and talents outside of Centric. Together, we have volunteered (along with our clients) at the Greater Chicago Food Depositorywalked for ALS and worked on a Katrina-damaged community center in New Orleans. Whether it is with our clients or in our community, we are trying to make the world a better place!

We were also recently named a 2017 Crain’s Best Place to Work for Minorities and overall finalist! Read the details.
