Our Company Values

Guiding Principles

  • 01
    Understand The Existing Ecosystem

    We allocate time and resources to comprehend, engage with, and collect information about the context and communities in which our project will be deployed. We establish project offices and invest in the countries long-term.

  • 02
    Be Data Driven

    Too often, reforms fail to fully leverage data to support project planning and decision-making. At NRD Companies, we gather and analyze existing data at the inception phase to make informed decisions and adjust the project plan so that it matches community needs.

  • 03
    Use Open Standards, Open Data, Open Source, and Open Innovation

    In our engagements, we offer solutions that are open for further development and enhancement, and that have the potential for scalability without the risk of solution lock-in.

  • 04
    Address Privacy & Security

    Our approach stems from the current situation that most of the systems designed, developed, and supported lack risk- and threat-based integration of security operations, thus having little resilience to cyber threats.

  • 05
    Build Sustainable Organizations

    With the right mix of skills, experience, and attitude, we make sure that the infrastructure is not another piece of software, but is something that has a positive long-term impact on the country or business.

  • 06
    Use Local Deployment Teams

    When delivering projects around the globe, we are organized around special deployment teams that are headed by project leaders experienced in multicultural environments.

  • 07
    Transfer Knowledge & Capacity

    We believe that knowledge and information should not be “thrown at the team”; instead, sufficient time should be allocated to develop new internal capacity. New processes should be enforced and supervised for a long time so that they become habits.

  • 08
    Boost Client Reputation

    Our team has extensive experience in reform dynamics, media relations management, and relations with stakeholders, and creating buy-in and momentum for further reforms. Our priority is always client success rather than formally listed requirements.

  • 09
    Enable Regulations/Directives

    Integration is what makes the difference in digital infrastructure projects. One simply cannot disassemble legal, workflow, and information processes into separate tasks. We marry legal, consultancy, and information technology skills in order to effectively address digital infrastructure challenges. We are a company that was born with these skills from the outset.

Our Global Footprint

NRD Companies implement products and projects in more than 50 countries worldwide.
