Toelichting (Engels) International consultancy in the water sector has changed over the past forty years, from pioneering in development cooperation projects of IFIs to company-driven business development with both public and private sector clients. As they positioned themselves for these changes, several Dutch consultancy firms increased their scale of operations through consolidation. The ramifications this had for company culture can be seen in the example of Royal HaskoningDHV. This article describes a brief informal study by Utrecht University of how the company adapted itself and how this was perceived by members of the baby boomer generation: consultants who still remember the early overseas projects, who saw approaches to international development evolve over time, and who personally had to adjust to changing operational circumstances. In their perception, international consultancy will never be the same even as more and more of their successors will spend part of their careers in overseas assignments.
