When you consider using a management consultant, look for the CMC® certification . . . Your organization deserves nothing less.
The Certified Management Consultant™ (CMC®) certification
is awarded to those select consultants (only 10,000 worldwide) who have
met global standards for competence, ethics, and results.
The earning of the CMC® by
a management consultant is no trivial matter; it can be likened to an attorney
passing the Bar, an accountant receiving a CPA, an engineer
obtaining their PE license, or a doctor receiving their medical license. A candidate must submit to the most rigorous
vetting process in the profession that includes receiving satisfaction surveys
from clients, taking in-depth examinations covering consulting competencies and
ethics, and sitting for a panel interview by senior CMC®s
Hiring a Certified Management Consultant means that you and your
project will benefit from a consultant who demonstrates of the highest
level of competence, as well as:
- A history of results and excellent performance. Evidence of a successful track record is found in client
testimonials, references, and repeat business, all of which are required
to maintain their CMC® certification.
- Adherence to the highest ethical standards of the profession. Your CMC® has
successfully completing both written and oral ethics examinations
covering commitments to the client, to fiscal responsibility, to the
public, and to the profession.
- Experience in the field. A minimum of three years of continuous consulting and successful results are required for certification.
- Life-long professional education. Your CMC® takes
advantage of IMC USA's national conferences, local workshops, topical
research, the Academy for Professional Development, newsletters, and
other chapter-level offerings.
- A reference network for challenging client problems.
They can utilize IMC USA's national database, local chapter reference
sources, and the combined wisdom of the knowledge management created and
maintained within IMC USA membership.
Clients can be confident that the
consultant who has earned the CMC®
certification has a history of
excellent performance in delivering results to clients; has met world-class
standards of competence, ethics, and client satisfaction; and has maintained
this level of professionalism through education and required periodic certification renewal.
these give you confidence in knowing that the CMC®
has passed the toughest certification in the profession, and the only consulting certification that has been ISO-accredited and recognized by the insurance industry as reducing risk. You can be sure that the same professionalism required for certification will be
demonstrated to you.
