Our work at The Change Execution Group is greatly influenced by reading, digesting, reframing and translating the work of others we admire. At CEG we try to leverage their thoughts and find impactful ways to expand the application.

Our credo is fueled in part from the possibilities that become magnified when these stories from our "Cool Friends in the Trenches" are converged with CEG's need to continuously reinvent the new normal for our clients.
