Consultants with vast amounts of specialised technical knowledge and experience but lacking entrepreneurial and business skills is a common problem in the engineering consultancy sector. Engineering consultancy Cauberg Huygen asked RSM to teach its engineering-trained employees how to become more creative and find new business models, a skill in which they had no formal training.
“We’re impressed with the knowledge and expertise of the academic team and their ability to understand our business and use this to the benefit of the training of our senior professionals. The co-operation with RSM has been very pleasant and I look forward to working with them again.”
Raffie Petronilla, learning and development expert, ING Wholesale Banking
“The programme was just great: it provided me with the skills to analyse an issue, and test new ideas in a structured way. I have applied this in practice, and re-engineered a process which has improved the way we work and serve our passengers.”
Wolfgang Merz, Head of International Business France, Benelux, UK, DB Fernverkehr AG (Long Distance Railways)
“I was impressed by the drive and enthusiasm of the participants and the way that RSM helped them grow from an operational level of thinking to a strategic one in such a short time. For me, that was the most valuable outcome of the programme.”
