  • We start at the top: make sure governance embraces its responsibilities and has a clear understanding of what it wants to accomplish
  • We separate governance and ownership from operations: empower the people you hire to run the organization with flexibility, creativity, and oversight
  • We focus on establishing operational controls that define a consistent method of doing business: ensure that all aspects of the company – from cybersecurity to customer satisfaction – are reliably managed and that performance is measurable
  • We provide proven, cost-effective, scaled, and practical solutions: establish controls that work with each organization’s unique needs and environment
  • We create continuous quality improvement loops that ensure that the organization can embrace innovation, exploring new opportunities, and constantly adapt to inevitable changes


At Centripetum, the underpinning of our work is to assist you in identifying and understanding the nuances of your critical issues related to control, cybersecurity, and/or compliance, and then identifying and developing both technical and operational solutions that can address them.

We understand that – in business – simply throwing more money, people, or equipment at a problem is at best a quick fix, and seldom the answer.  Even worse, these approaches waste resources that could be addressing the real problem, and distract from the kind of planning and efforts that can lead to the results you are truly seeking… value, security, reliability, sustainability…

Our process is much simpler: get to the root of a problem and generate ideas and solutions, with real costs (or savings), that will generate real value for your business.
