Who we are
Founded in 2003, Collective Next strives to help organizations, communities and individuals come together, think better, and move forward. We use the power of collaboration to create value for our clients in the areas of strategy, design, execution, communications, and engagement. Clients include Fortune 500 companies in the financial services, health care, insurance, pharmaceutical, energy, consumer electronics, technology, and professional services industries.
With headquarters in Boston, team members in New York, Chicago, Dallas, and Milwaukee, and a global network of partners and resources, we are curious practitioners in the principles of design and collaboration, and how they apply to common and uncommon business challenges.
We thrive on complex challenges that our clients present to us and are at our best when we partner with them and each other to see creative and innovative solutions come to life.
As professionals we have emerged from several schools of thought and practice, particularly in the realm of group process, collaboration and design thinking. Early influencers include MG Taylor on the power of Group Genius, as well as the ability to practice our craft as part of Capgemini's Accelerated Solutions Environment.
Combining all of that with the practical application of our work with our own clients over the past 12 years, we have honed the craft of applied collaboration, developed a wealth of experience and an expansive set of tools that take collaboration well beyond the design session.
