Our premise is that all companies have vision, but most need help in shaping it and effectively pursuing it.
Almost always, they know what they need to do … often, they know where they want to go … sometimes, they know how they are going to get there.
Newton Consulting helps fill in their IT and HR vision implementation gaps.
Our goal is to provide our clients the best that consultants have to offer:
Partnership, leadership, experience, expertise, focus, catalytic energy, and commitment to the mission ’ s success …
… Without the conflicting “ profit first ” and “ high-growth-based ” business agendas of large consulting organizations such as: large project mentality, sales and execution team separation, force-fitting of available resources, high-risk resource leveraging, etc.
Company Background “ Perhaps the best reference I can give Newton Consulting is that fact that I have continued to ask their consultants back to work on IT strategy and development projects for over five years. On each and every one of these engagements, the Newton team has met or exceeded my expectations. -- Director of Information Technology for a $6B Distributor of Industrial Chemicals Who We Are
