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.

Probably human resources. You look at kas of employees unique to some firms over others.

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.
