What We Do
We work with organisations to rethink structures towards a model that combines real participation and exceptional results, taking advantage of the system’s installed collective intelligence and creating spaces for real innovation.
CoCriar is the pioneer of this approach in Brazil, with a team of 6 people supported by a network of 25 associate consultants based in 8 different cities in the country and with more than 60 corporate, governmental and third sector clients.
Design and Facilitation of Participatory Processes
CoCriar’s main work is in designing and facilitating group processes, events and gatherings in a participatory and collaborative way. We deeply explore the emergent collective intelligence, harvesting and systematising products and results produced by the group.
Our collaborative approach can be applied to development, re-structure and conception of organisations. Organisations which are excessively hierarchical, bureaucratic and based on command and control are currently not able to deal with the world’s current needs.
Training and Human Development
We understand that an important contribution to empower creation and nutrition of more collaborative systems comes from the development of skills of people who can operate from another paradigm.
