In a nutshell, I’m the real deal, I’m not between jobs. Business consulting has been my job for 20+ years. I have earned the professional designation of Certified Management Consultant (CMC), which is the foremost designation awarded professional management consultants in North America.
The CMC designation demonstrates a consultants’ commitment to the best practices in management consulting. In today’s business climate, clients seek a trusted advisor with proven skills. The Essentials of Management Consulting is designed to help management consultants learn to address all six functional areas of their clients’ organizations, as well as to help prepare them for the Comprehensive Exam leading to the CMC designation.
The CMC designation is awarded to those select consultants who have demonstrated a history of substantive results for clients, adherence to the canon of ethics of the Canadian Association of Management Consultants, and professional practice management. Global standards of technical competence and professional conduct are set by the 44-nation International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI).
A history of results and excellent performance, as evidenced by client testimonials, references, and repeat business. Evidence of that successful track record is required for CMC certification.
Adherence to the highest ethical standards of the profession, as manifest by successfully completing both written and oral ethics examinations on the consultant’s commitments to the client, fiscal responsibility, and to the public and the profession.
Demonstration of a the highest level of competence as a consultant.
Experience in the field, since a minimum of three years of continuous consulting and successful results are required for certification.
Life-long professional education, provided by the organization in the form of national conferences, local workshops, topical research, newsletters, and other chapter professional development offerings.
All these give you confidence in knowing that the consulting resource you’ve chosen has passed the toughest certification in the profession, and must maintain that degree of performance through renewal of that certification every three years to current global standards.
