Innovation
Neta Snook is a B-Corp. whose mission is to help organizations learn to practice human-centered principles. We engage our clients in a virtuous cycle of exploration, experimentation and evaluation to achieve their goals.
Working With Us
We move fast towards practical ideals that enable our clients to connect big vision with concrete action. We especially enjoy tackling tough problems where positive outcomes will benefit many, but we're motivated by important issues at any scale.
Our Human-Centered Process
We structure every project to build knowledge, maximize impact and create consensus about how to move forward. We apply a cyclic three phase process, tailoring our approach to meet any organization's challenge.
Explore
First we use social science to develop an understanding of the human systems in and around your business.
Experiment
Next we design and implement interventions drawing on what we've learned to help you achieve your goals.
Evaluate
Finally we draw data driven conclusions to measure the impact of our action and inform your future roadmap.
What We Create For You
The deliverables we produce are chosen to support the needs of your project. We have in-house ability to design a wide range of interventions to help you understand human behavior, plan and execute tailored strategies, and build the tools you'll need to harness human ingenuity.
Ethnographic Experiences
From richly detailed portraits of your customers to hands-on workshops training your team in human-centered techniques, we offer a range of approaches that impart the benefits of ethnography and increase empathy in your organization.
Strategies & Plans
With the capability to address any aspect of your business, from marketing to product development, we provide organizations with a variety of bespoke tools including operations plans, strategy guidelines and technical handbooks.
Products & Resources
Informed implementation is at the heart of our process. We help you understand what your business actually needs, be it marketing campaign assets, a brand identity package or a prototype application, and then we build a solid foundation to get you going.
Roadmap Analyses
Skilled in both quantitative and qualitative analysis of data, whether from our interventions or yours, we assist in organizational planning by drafting timelines, roadmaps and milestone objectives to operationalize the results of those reflections.

Our Namesake
Neta Snook
Neta Snook was a pioneer aviator who accomplished many firsts, including being both the first female flier to run her own aviation business as well as the first to manage a commercial airfield. As an accomplished aviation instructor, Neta Snook is perhaps most remembered for teaching Amelia Earhart to fly. Inspired by her intrepid, generous spirit, we named our company after Neta Snook because we too want to help our clients take flight.
