Philosophy & Competitive Advantages

At ICF Next, we are focused on what comes Next. As many marketers remain focused on engagement or experience, we are pushing into the next territory, Participation. Put simply, we believe there’s something beyond great experiences. Something that does more than produce a series of actions, the impact of which is easily forgotten. We call it Participation and it enables us to transcend experience and create long-lasting, emotional connections with the audiences you care most about.

To help our clients drive Participation with the audiences they care most about, we think about our capabilities in four critical areas. First, we believe in insights to drive strategy and think about data, analytics and strategic planning capabilities in an integrated way. Second, we leverage technology to enable connections. That includes our work as a partner of Adobe and Salesforce, our capabilities as a developer and, of course, through Tally, our world-class loyalty technology platform. Third, we employ creativity to architect relationships through our capabilities in brand, PR, paid media, creative and other marketing services. Finally, we appreciate that impact matters much more than outputs, so we bring forward our management consulting expertise through organizational optimization, process design and change management to ensure that everything we do delivers maximum impact for our clients.
