Confusion is Free. Clarity Requires Research.

Effective Strategies are Built on Data and Led by Goals

Successful businesses define their goals and create strategic pathways to achieve those goals. Your business or organization may have goals related to performance, growth, consumer experience, and more, that all help ensure your continued success.

The processes that will carry your organization from its current state to your desired future can be widely understood as your strategy. Goals are vital to the creation of effective strategies because they help us set targets and prioritize values. But we can’t forget research. Establishing sensible goals and crafting plans to achieve them necessitate a careful look at relevant data.

NewGround’s research resources include our own in-house expertise and support from renowned research partners. We study consumer behavior, consumer preferences, technology implementation, market trends, and more to help our clients form impactful strategies for achieving their performance goals in the short and long terms.

Exploring Areas of Strategy

Clients choose NewGround as a strategic partner because of our proven process for strategy development and our extensive research network. Strategy impacts the implementation of consumer-level technologies and services, as well as the internal alignment of brand values among your team. 

Financial Institution Strategy

All kinds of service providers must reassess their consumer-level technologies on a regular basis. This is especially true of Financial Institutions where consumers are constantly introduced to transformative technologies that change the way they interact with brands. 

NewGround constantly works with financial institutions to help them assess their current offerings and find the right new technologies to help them achieve their service goals and increase consumer engagement. We help our clients adapt to the shifting demands of Millennials and Gen Z consumers who often express a preference for remote services and web-based solutions.


When brands address their internal culture, they must follow through with action. Any leader can espouse cultural values in their company, but a true expression of company culture happens at the consumer level where your team members are directly serving your customers. NewGround’s research on cultural alignment explores how to create and foster a culture that truly impacts your services and internal processes.

A successful culture aligns with the brand’s core values and fosters an environment where delivering on those values is the path of least resistance. From services rendered to the executive suite, NewGround can help you imagine how your brand’s values can be realized in word and deed.

Workplace Strategy

NewGround engages in research that explores workplace values and trends. The increasing relevance of remote work, open office design, and staff amenities are a few of the areas of research we focus on. Our goal is to discover the implications of a changing world and the impact on workers and workplaces. 

We compare relevant research with available strategies to find potential solutions that suit your needs and align with your company culture.
