The next step toward digital transformation

With Business Next Step, we help organizations take a concrete next step towards a more digital organization. During some short, but powerful workshops, we set out short-term tactical actions and make long-term strategic plans. Don't keep spinning in circles, but take a real step forward!

When optimizing and digitizing a process, the problem definition and underlying needs are not always clear. For example, how do you translate an idea into a clear vision with a clear scope, approach and roadmap? How do you avoid inefficiencies in your workflow? These issues come up in both a process optimization and concrete plans such as replacing an existing software platform.

With Business Next Step, Harmony looks for concrete problems, puts all noses in the same direction, and determines what actions can be taken immediately and what the long-term roadmap will look like.

The Harmony Approach

Focus on Business
Harmony has more than 70 consultants offering a broad spectrum of business and IT services. We are not satisfied until the customer achieves her business goals.
Agreed budget
The Business Next Step process is always preceded by a quotation. The customer then knows exactly what our service will cost.
Business Consultants
Harmony has more than 20 business consultants working in a variety of industries. Our internal ecosystem also encourages everyone to share their specific expertise with others.
Agreed deliverables
The customer knows in advance what the output of the workshops will be, ranging from scope description, to short and long term actions.
The big picture
Business Next Step fits seamlessly with the services we offer. In 4 phases we guide the client from idea to implementation.
Agreed timeframe
Planning was discussed with the customer in advance. Planning is always about weeks, not months.

Reference case Social Economy
A customer from the social economy sector who was also active in green maintenance was looking for a tool to help them schedule the maintenance of equipment such as lawn mowers and the like. They were flooded with information from different suppliers but did not have a clear view on their own needs. After a few workshops, a clear RFP was issued for suppliers to bid on. The rest of the project then proceeded in a much more structured manner.
Reference case Logistics
A customer with a large logistics center had plans to implement a large-scale renovation. However, this had to be done without shutting down the current operation. Based on several workshops, the different ideas were mapped out. Eventually all stakeholders decided by consensus to roll out the chosen scenario. The fact that the scope and approach were chosen in consultation created a lot of goodwill in the organization and, in addition to the structured approach to the project, was one of the success factors.
Reference case Insurance (2)
Een klant binnen de insurance sector wenste een groot digitalisatie programma op te starten maar binnen een grote organisatie is dat niet evident, omwille van de vele stakehoders die er vaak uiteenlopende ideeën over hebben. Hier heeft Harmony geholpen om in één maand duidelijke doelstellingen en scope te bepalen met daaraan gekoppeld een roadmap die door alle stakeholders gedragen werd. Dit lag aan de basis van het succes van het verdere verloop van het programma.
Reference case Insurance (1)
A client from the Insurance sector had a huge operational backlog. In 3 workshops and at 2 weeks, we helped them to define immediate actions to solve the crisis, to improve the processes and to change the dynamics within the team. So in a very short period of time this client got a grip on the problems.
Reference case Public Transport
A major player in Public Transport in the Benelux had a project with the goal of planning large maintenance works. The project was not running smoothly and according to one party it was mainly an IT problem while the other party thought it was a business problem. In a number of workshops the needs were made clear again and it became clear to everyone what the actual goal of the project was. The scope was clearly defined again and the project was successfully continued.
