    Why Centre of Gravity?

    Over 15 years ago, we pioneered the idea of human-centered strategy. Today, we are a world-class strategy consulting firm,

    a mad-tribe of deep-thinking strategists, community builders, storytellers, and brand-designers. But our essential difference is and continues to be the philosophy of human-centeredness.

    Our philosophy

    Join our tribe

    Movies, music, books, politics, brands, relationships, institutions, social issues etc. or even something that we experience on our way to work in the morning.

    Each of these can spark deep insights. But it takes two to tango. We’d love for a two-way conversation with YOU. It can help create or shape all our perspectives—much beyond what we are capable of alone.

      For 15+ years, and long before ‘human-centered’ joined other management jargon and became a buzzword, we have been practicing Human-Centered Strategy with some of the world’s best-known companies and nonprofits. With great success!
      It made us realize there’s a lot we can share with the world. With our unique blend of storytelling and case narrations, we aim to spark a lively dialogue about the context in which customers and brands should actually be understood.

      Watch our films

      As part of our work, we’ve had thousands of conversations with people, mostly in their personal settings. We’ve gained the ability to have open and rich conversations, elicit stories and listen deeply at the same time.
      Some of these stories needed to be told to the larger world. Especially when the stories humanize subjects that hitherto seemed cold, remote, or exclusionary.
      Our latest film tells stories about the master tailors of Savile Row, London.

      The great Indian Kitchen

      It was just yesterday that I was having this conversation with a friend. She asked me, ‘why don’t you hire a cook?’ And it’s a question a few of my colleagues have asked too. And quite frankly, irrespective of whatever excuse I may give for not hiring, the honest answer may be that I have started enjoying cooking. I am not talking about the creative art of cooking when the right mood arrives. I am talking about cooking as a daily habit. The everyday cooking. An Indian household churns out Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and sometimes even an evening snack. There was a time it blew my mind to think even it’s humanly possible. Spending so much time every day cooking. What drives us to do this otherwise mundane, uneventful, and tedious act? And I must admit that there was a time when I used to view it just as dull, a necessary evil. When did this change?
