Professional or Profession?

Posted By Victor Delacruz US Army, Friday, August 19, 2011
Doctors (medical), lawyers (legal), accountants (accounting), engineers (engineering), project managers (project management) and other occupations are true professions.  They have established the requisite boundaries, the descrete body of knowledge, the national certifications and licensing, and the ethical codes that can be enforced.  Yet, can we call Management Consulting a profession?  Based on the criteria above, I would say there is much work to be done but where do we start?  As we look at the disciplines that the IMC USA describes, Strategy is where I think we could start.  Why?  Because strategic planners/managers have the potential as a discipline to achieve the criteria to be called a profession. In the mean time, I submit that we are professionals, but not part of a true profession.

The IMC website gives you another way to view IMC members, besides our LinkedIn group.  Be sure to update your profile and add key words about your practice! Click the "Edit My Profile" link on the "Manage My Membership" menu to the right. Your profile is used in the Find A Consultant search engine and is indexed by search engines (unless your own website is getting more than 75,000 page views a month, this is one place your profile needs to be up to date).
