IT Consulting & Advisory Services
We help you focus on innovation by connecting the dots between technology, operations, and business value.
Assessments and Change Management
Change is hard. Often, an experienced, outside perspective can really help. We partner with CEOs, senior leadership, and boards to validate that the organization’s activities are aligned with driving results. With decades of product and engineering experience and hundreds of examples of “what good looks like” we can help your organization evolve to the next stage – whether it’s integrating acquisitions, accommodating to scale, managing cost or entering new markets. Our approach is fact-based, transparent, and balanced. The results are actionable.
Newfire’s Due Diligence services support venture capital, Private Equity and large enterprises as they evaluate investments and acquisitions. Our experienced network of US-based operators (including current and former C-level product and engineering executives from public companies and major startups), supported by our global team, can provide a fast, actionable review of opportunities. Newfire diligence projects are modular – including IT, software development, product management, security and regulatory compliance.
Whether you are a new company or just launching something new, bringing a product into the world takes a lot of specialized skills. Our Accelerated Start projects help get you going quickly. We bring a mix of product leaders, designers, researchers and software architects to help you quickly define your Minimal Viable Product, create designs that you can pressure test with users, and build out a roadmap that you can execute on.
You don’t have to go it alone – in a Newfire Accelerated Start you get the benefit of experience across hundreds of projects, and even templates to move faster on the infrastructure so that you can focus your time and attention on the things that build value for your business.
Strategic Project Leadership
Strategic projects need leaders who have been there before – whether it’s a complex integration, a major migration or a critical compliance initiative. Newfire’s advisors can step in and provide direction, or take a hands-on role.
Interim Senior Operating Roles
Our team includes senior operators and industry veterans who understand what it takes to bring innovation to the marketplace. In our careers, we’ve met the demands of venture capitalists, built high-functioning teams, and successfully launched new products. We can support your organization in interim operating roles, faithfully reporting to CEOs, senior leadership, and boards.
We appreciate the pitfalls and long-term implications of technology choices. We’ll put together a team of domain experts with a solutions architect at the center of it all. De-risk your strategic technology decisions with Newfire Global Partners.
Outcome: The solutions architect can have an on-site presence, mobilize and oversee a development team, and help you cultivate a robust, in-house development practice. Depending on your preferences, the team can remain indefinitely or help you train pre-existing team members.
Each business is a unique environment that is full of ideas and activities. We utilize a standardized playbook to review your company’s technology lifecycle, studying architecture, process maturity, and current skill sets. From security to design patterns, Newfire Global Partners will help light the way for your company while maintaining a high level of confidentiality.
Outcome: Before you make a major investment, our team will deliver a thoughtful assessment that will reduce the uncertainty and guesswork and ensure all the stakeholders have full confidence in the investment.
Ideas quickly become worthless if they don’t meet real-world demand. Newfire Global Partners’ leadership includes experienced product managers who have successfully launched new products. From properly defining an MVP to factor the true cost of integrating technology acquisitions, Newfire Global Partners can provide an objective assessment.
Outcome: We will help you to develop an impartial evaluation of the value and completeness of your product and development initiatives.
