What people say

What does kazuri mean?
That depends on your angle.
In Swahili, kazuri means something small and beautiful. In Japanese, kazu (和) means harmony and ri (理) is management.
Both epitomise what we do. We help businesses thrive by unearthing small, beautiful insights and putting them into action. At the same time, harmonious management is the hallmark of an effective cross-cultural approach.
Just like culture, there’s more than one way to look at us. We are Kazuri - and kazuri is the heart of what we do.
