The name is a spin to the word "consultant" : Non + (con)sultant
"Non" becuase the company is not like other consultancies, if the name should be spelled out would it be: "Not-like-other-consultanties".
Our values (in that order):
We have created a Nonsultant manifest, it currently look likes this:
§ 1 Co-operation
¶ 1.1 Nonsultant's co-operate with each other and our customers
§ 2 Customers & partners
¶ 2.1 We treat our customers as partners, and the goal is always long term relationships.
¶ 2.2 Everything will come to an end (in all parts of life), we are open about this and the possibility to the end the partnership at any time.
¶ 2.3 As any partnership, should partnership with Nonsultant's be bidirectional (we help and support each other).
§ 3 Curiosity & knowledge
¶ 3.1 Nonsultant's are inherently curious and they should be encouraged to stay that way! Curiosity leads to innovation which leads to smart solutions.
¶ 3.2 Curiosity and knowledge should be shared. With colleagues, partners, and the general public!
§ 4 Buzzwords
¶ 4.1 Buzzwords == Swearwords. Every time a buzzword is used unnecessarily we put extra story points in a swearjar
§ 5 Productivity
¶ 5.1 Talk is cheap.
¶ 5.2 Fancy presentations in it self does not provide any value, we aim to use time productively instead. Let the solution do the talking, not the colours on the slide.
¶ 5.3 Using more than 15% of week on meetings is a crime and punishable by project extensions. Plan your meetings with Nonsultant's carefully, have agendas and expected outcomes ready.
No slogan is given, but suggestions are welcome. :)
Regarding the logo:
We imagine (IMPORTANT it doesn't need to be the case) our logo to include some kind of mascot. The actual logo could contain just a part of the mascot, but there should be a idea of how the full mascot looks like.
This could both be an imaginary mascot or maybe an animal.
A few images of other tech-company mascots which we like is attached as images, these can be seen as inspiration.
