Interview training at

On Friday, we received a training session from Alise and Rik about the do’s and don’ts of interviewing. The main takeaways are how to structure questions, where to look for answers, and most importantly, learning to properly prepare! Unfortunately, covid struck again and we were forced to organize the training online. However, on the upside, we have another great zoom-group pic. Thank you Rik and Alise for your insights!

RPM’s focuses on sustainable business

In light of the COP26, which is transpiring these two weeks we want to attribute our piece to the puzzle that is tackling climate change. With experts and partners, we are busy setting up research methodologies to help Dutch companies get a better understanding of the progress of their partners in our target countries.

In order to collect data on how Dutch business culture perceives the challenges facing us, want to ask you: What does sustainability mean to you?

This survey will help us create the knowledge of what drives you and your business, and will only take a few minutes.

Thank you!

 

Case study market entry

Last Friday, we were welcomed at the KPMG office in Amstelveen to examine a case study on market entry. The team learned different methods to structure problems and find answers in a step-by-step manner. ‘Keep it simple’, ’think before you act’, and ‘end in mind’ are principles we will not forget in our own research. Thanks, Ko de Wit and Jelle Jochems for the informative and fun session!

RPM and SDG Align for sustainability!

Sustainability is increasingly important from a business perspective. With the EU mandating sustainability reporting, it has become vital to assess and improves companies’ policy towards Sustainable Development Goals. At RPM, we want to discover what themes are most important to Dutch businesses, in order to provide tailored assessment and strategic development advice.

Therefore, Research Project Maastricht has partnered together with the award-winning tool of SDG Align to help companies assess their economic, societal and environmental impact. We want to ask you: What does sustainability mean to you?

This survey will help us create the knowledge of what drives you and your business, and will only take a few minutes.

Thank you!

 

Planning and reporting training at

Last Friday, the team was welcomed at EY Amsterdam by RPM alumni Tommie Linders and Robin Veenstra. The training consisted of how to structure and present our research proposals and advice concerning research strategies and techniques. The lessons learned are implemented and the team is ready to pursue the newfound opportunities.

We want to thank Tommie and Robin for their helpful guidance!

 

RPM to Eastern Europe!

The last few weeks have been extremely busy and challenging. Three weeks ago, together with our experts in Vietnam & The Philippines, we reached a tough decision. Due to the unfortunate covid-situation in both countries, the borders are currently closed. To make matters worse, there are little signs the situation is going to be better coming January. 

Because of this, we decided to find an alternative location that we were sure we could visit. The safest option therefore would be within Europe, and preferably, the EU. We looked at multiple regions within the EU and ultimately decided on the region with the highest growth potential; Eastern Europe! More specifically, we decided on six countries; Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria. We are extremely excited to discover what Eastern Europe has in store for us, and will keep you posted on the developments!
