Abstract:This research paper investigates the competences and core competences of a leading Dutch research organisation in the aerospace industry. An extensive literature research has been performed to get familiar with this topic. In the end, the research is based on several existing theories related to the competences and core competences. Examples of these theories are the Resource-Based View and the Relational View. Next to this, the research towards the core competence is also executed based on a scoring model, which integrates all the assessments of a core competence and can therefore be classified as an overarching model for measuring core competences. The research in this paper is performed in three ways: 1) Via a data research to establish the outside perspective of the author on the competences of COMPANY X. 2) Feedback sessions. The combined results of these two methods served as a basis for the input of the third analysing method: the survey. 3) A survey with 19 experts of COMPANY X, which have in general a good idea of the company, to identify via the scoring model the core competences of COMPANY X. The first two analysing methods resulted into fifteen identified competences. The survey resulted into eight identified core competences of COMPANY X.
