Turn Market Uncertainty into a Competitive Advantage
Moves The Needle helps organizations adopt an “entrepreneurial spirit” to create customer value, find new growth, and execute more efficiently.
We don’t do theory. We don’t do front of the class room “thought leadership.” Pardon the pun, but we Move the Needle. Our job is to help your teams drive impact by creating a blueprint for success and partnering with you to execute upon it.
We’re not just talk. We do hands-on, intensive change management acceleration. We build culture by doing. Teams and leaders work with a new mindset on actual business problems with intensive coaching within a discreet time frame.
Outcomes matter. We employ exploration skills blending human-centered design, rapid experimentation, Agile, and evidence-informed decision-making to reduce “unknowns”, validate assumptions, and cut through personal biases.
Create Value. Being customer-centric means solving customer needs. How one measures the progress toward success is vital. Being on time and under budget is of little consequence if your customers don’t care.
Yes, everyone says they’re different. But see what our customers say:
