Training and capacity Building

Institutional Strengthening

Sustainable policy implementation requires strategy development and elaboration supported by clear focus on human resource development. To successfully deploy policies and programmes, capacity and institutional development are key.

As components of institution building, Ecorys has developed and successfully executed programmes for many institutions, including: organisational design - coordination systems, functional characteristics, job descriptions and attestation; change management; training needs assessment; development and realisation of specialised trainings, including certification programmes.

Change & Process Management

Change management is all about communicating to relevant stakeholders about necessary changes in organisation or policy. More often than not, change management coincides with process management.

Ecorys knows that the success of change management projects rests on a thorough analysis of the starting situation. Only from this can we begin to determine need for and capability to change. Working together with the relevant actors in the change process is vital, as is good understanding and working knowledge of people management, budgets and financial management, operational management communication.

Ecorys advises on customised financing packages and provides full financial risk assessment to corporates, real estate developers or infrastructure sponsors. We also assist investors and corporates in asset management.
