When leaders have problems that they want understand, prioritize, and solve, they usually turn to people in their own organization, but those people are often overworked, and sometimes lack experience in solving problems in innovative ways, which means solutions arrive slowly or not at all.
So, we built team of experienced, practicing innovators that work with our clients to identify, prioritize, and solve their biggest problems now.

Our clients are always leaning forward.
These organizations' leaders know they have unsolved problems they would like understand, prioritize, and then work to solve, but that requires them to carve out resources from constrained budgets and overworked people – people who may also lack experience in approaching problems in innovative ways, which means solutions arrive slowly or not at all. That's where Team NEXT can help.

We empower leaders to go beyond innovation theater into real results.
Every great organization begins as a scrappy startup willing to take risks on new ideas, new methods, and new markets. Over time, tools and processes emerge to deliver repeatable results, but they can reduce the ability to be agile and lean and to respond to new opportunities and threats. Our services help leaders cut through the layers to resharpen their innovator’s edge.
Leaders want to keep their products, their business model, and their organization at the forefront of their industry. Our fractional Chief Innovation Officer practice embeds the NEXT team into your team. We’ll bring insight and external perspective, leverage techniques and tools from the startup world, and challenge your thinking about “the way it’s always been done.”
