Our Design Principles

We see great design as the foundation to all we do at Next. It drives the decisions we make and the value we bring to our collaborations.

We believe there is both art and science in the development of organizational strategy and leaders.

The design of leader development is an integrated response to a complex range of issues. It’s easy to be too complex or too simple, too academic or too elementary. It’s a paradox. There is also the hazard of overload, in which multiple tools are offered but nothing sticks.

What is it time for? Whatever the response to that question, these are the design principles we live by:


We translate complexity into practical, applied solutions.


We initiate lasting change built on unique learning experiences.


We develop new skills with a toolbox designed for sharing.


We invite, gather, and leverage collective intelligence.


We foster sustainable leadership, that guides a sustainable enterprise, in service to a sustainable world.
