RBV for Consulting Engineering Company

Francisco, one cannot "generalize" about the RBV. It is company-specific. Therefore, there is no application of the RBV to "such a company"... Without knowing a lot about exactly which company you're talking about.

I agree with Warren, you'll have to dig into how they do the engineering consulting process and identify their unique capabilities.

RBV

Hi, I am also writing a thesis, where RBV is a part of the strategic management view.
You can also think about how customer centricity can be seen as RBV-skill, because engineering is a very people-sensitive field.
The second advise would be to focus on knowledge management and knowledge sharing routines.
