In 2005, IMC USA started a new service to promote excellence and ethics in management consulting by publishing Daily Tips for Consultants. Every weekday morning, current subscribers receive an email with advice on marketing, service delivery, consulting ethics, client relations, teaming, practice management and many other tips, tricks and traps of the consulting profession.
We improved the format and focus over the years in response to subscriber comments. Now, after 1,000 tips and 5,000 subscribers in the consulting and management professions, we're making a few more to cut down on email:
- You can now get email tips only once a week (click the "Update Profile/Email Address" link at the bottom of your tip and change your subscription from Daily Tip to Weekly Tip)
- If you would like to subscribe to tips by RSS feed instead of by email, the tips will be delivered to your reader so you may read them at your leisure.
- Starting next Monday, we will begin republishing many earlier tips. We get so many subscriber requests for prior tips that we will revise, refresh and update many of our older tips.
- IMC members and registered website guests may subscribe to the Daily Tips for Consultants blog. The blog format provides the ability to search for tip content because tips are now tagged.
Thanks to our subscribers for your continued support and your many comments and requests for specific tips. Consider offering the benefit of these tips to your colleagues and clients. They would appreciate your thoughtfulness of sending then a tip that would improve their effectiveness or ethics. © 2009 Institute of Management Consultants USA
