The Next Thing Group


The Next Thing B.V. was established to guide and help enterprises to achieve their sustainable strategic goals and upmost value creation. We provide these companies means to ensure that they can actively steer their organization instead of the traditional post steering. 

Our range of tools and techniques unveils the hidden factors that can make or break sustained strategic execution.

We will help and guide the organization to align stakeholder interests with those of the company’s sustainability plans.

The Next Thing anticipates on areas of strength and blockage when implementing new intelligent steering systems by dint of addressing human as well as process factors.

To make it a complete success, we have chosen to make change management a key element within our product.


The events in global business management are increasing the focus on more sustainable performance out of existing business platforms. As technology brings the world to your smartphones, tablets and other devices real-time, global is no longer the playground for the large, multi-national corporations only. 

The main theme of our philosophy is to expand the traditional business function into a more comprehensive and collaborative corporate functions that encompasses finance, HR, commercial, IT, risk & compliance and explains how these combined functions can make businesses more efficient and sustainable when used in conjunction with the strategic business model.

No more backwards looking and deciding what course your organization should go, but taking advantages of current latest technologies to actively steer your organization. We can provide you with the best practices in business management, technologies and change management to provide you with transparency through the entire organization and keep real-time focus on your goals and objectives.
