Why competencies

In short, no ‘fake it before you make it’. Whether for a case study, for a course, for a tender bid or for product development, all services of Watermotion stand on a base of competencies that is well proven and up to date — A mature expertise deploys the relevant knowledge, the attending capabilities, and the blend of execution and soft skills that suit each objective

The bundle of diverse capabilities and skills makes it possible to provide specialist knowledge in a way accessible to challenge-owners, politicians, activists, financiers, as well as to fellow scholars and practitioners

Also, thanks to this broad baseline of competencies, engaging in multidisciplinary projects is fast and effective — It brings fresh and reasoned perspectives, and maximizes the mutual returns one expects from committed cooperation

Which competencies (pathfinder)

The thorough understanding of geophysical, environmental and engineering flows is a long-standing asset of Watermotion — This has grown over the years thanks to a genuine passion for water engineering and science — This has also been cemented by keen interest in expressions and renderings most appropriate to the message

The library of Watermotion counts some seventy textbooks, a solid grounding in the established knowledge. This enables the top-down view on special aspects and the swift criss-crossing over topics and work areas

Finally, the linguistic, computing and presentational proficiencies accrued over time are the mortar for cementing the deliverables of Watermotion into a consistent and accessible whole — see the factsheet language and computing ∨

Advance • clarify • devise • enrich

Competencies are the bridge between skills, capabilities and knowledge — They help dialogue, connect, retrieve, imagine. Hence, the answers can follow questions, the solutions can follow problems, and decisions can follow uncertainties — So competencies are the enablers of the fourfold mission of Watermotion

— advancing understanding
— clarifying targets
— devising solutions
— enriching skills

More concretely, they are essential to

• guide the choice of the resources appropriate for the purpose in sight
• help compose a simpler, yet pertinent, description of complicated situations
• make difficult problems understandable and tractable
• direct understanding and action towards the desired achievements

Well-rendered solutions > can stimulate appreciation, evaluation and decisions about the fascinating intricacies of the flowing environment
