The two stages

Diagnosis

The diagnosis stage was done in partnership with Nova Junior Consulting student club, the law-firm Vieira de Almeida, and the consulting firm PwC. It came to an end in May 2019, and involved more than 130 people, among students, faculty & staff from Nova SBE, members of the participant organizations, PwC consultants and VdA lawyers.
