Cutting edge leadership thinking.


NAG BOSTON

We don't just serve our clients in their strategic and transaction needs. We see our partnership much more broadly. Keeping our clients up-to-date on the cutting edge leadership thinking is one of the roles we think belongs to our part of our relationship bargain. In our knowledge building efforts we cooperate closely with Harvard Business School professors Boris Groysberg and William Kerr, and with MIT professor Jonathan Byrnes. In big data engagements, we cooperate closely with John Wass and Boston based firm Profit Isle.
