CDM started its activities on the 1st of October 1994 as a foundation. Our founders are: The British Embassy Bucharest, The Transilvania Bank, The Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture Cluj, The County Council Cluj, Leumi Bank, The Babeș Bolyai University and The Technical University.
CDM Consulting was intended to be a consultancy division, a structure that provides consulting and training programmes dedicated to companies.
We strongly believe in our motto, “BUSINESS IS LEARNING” and we apply this principle both in our work with clients and inside CDM through our internal programmes of continual development and perfection of both practical and theoretical knowledge. The main source for experience and learning is working with our clients, and we complement it through the continual training of our consultants by taking part in training courses in Romania and abroad, offered by prestigious institutions from Italy – Gruppo SOGES, Finland – Tulossilta, Great Britain – Ashridge Management College, Chartred Institute of Marketing, DUBS University, Sunridge Park, etc.
Our growth and development has been facilitated by a well structured initial programme thought out by the Roffey Park Management Institute, Great Britain. Lasting over three years the programme aimed to develop the consulting and training skills of CDM members. The powerful processes used in our work together with our clients have also influenced our own development and have generated important changes in ourselves and in CDM as a company.
Working with the Roffey Park consultants and other partners has not only built up abilities and expertise, but also gave us the chance to create clear company values and strong ethical principles in relationship with our partners.
Since 1997, CDM has been affiliated with the Roffey Park Management Institute, one of the most prestigious management institutions in Europe, with an experience in transforming companies of over 60 years.
