OUR VALUES

When creating a lasting impact for organisations,

we adhere to 4 core values

GET THINGS DONE

At Nexion, we are effective, that is, we deliver or produce the intended or expected results. 

Focused & Persistent

Inside our value frame

Set clear priorities. Focus on 20% of activities that create 80% of the results before making incremental improvements. Provide information and/or tools that add long-term value.

Outside our value frame

Letting your fears stand in the way of your dreams.

Reliable

Inside our value frame

Never miss a single deadline. Stick to your promises. Be trustworthy.

Outside our value frame

Overpromissing and underdelivering. Paying lip service. Engaging in sweet or empty talk.

f

Agile

Inside our value frame

Place responding to change over following a rigid plan. Place individuals and interactions over processes and tools. Place customer collaboration over contract negotiation. For every problem, provide 2 solutions.

Outside our value frame

Being agile must not result in poor resource planning and forgetting the bigger picture. Placing short-termism over the creation of long-term value and impact.

“It always seems impossible until it is done”.

Nelson Mandela

Do actions agree with words? There’s your measure of reliability. Never confine yourself to the words.

Frank Herbert

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything”

George Bernard Shaw

DO NEW THINGS

At Nexion, we take a design-thinking approach and build on our diversity.

Customer-centric

Outside our value frame

Customer centricity that is not sustainable or mutually beneficial and does not establish win-win-win situations.

Visionary & Innovative

Inside our value frame

Create new ideas, look for opportunities, and make creative value propositions. Be inspiring and proactive rather than reactive. Be passionate about finding solutions for complicated and complex challenges. Look at problems differently and think creatively.

We do not accept “I don’t know how” and/or “I can’t”. Kill or discredit ideas before they are born.

Connected

Tap into our large network and find the best ans suitable expert if your clients’ challenge is outside of our field of expertise. That way we ensure high quality solutions and increase our clients’ management time and resources.

Waste resources. Engaging in inefficient activities.

Objective & Transparent

Inside our value frame

Take a multi-disciplinary and evidence-based approach. Be an effective communicator. Apply active listening. Create common ground. Reward good processes and good outcomes.
