Certified Management Consultant (CMC).

Stand out from the crowd.

The Certified Management Consultant (CMC) award is the ultimate accolade for consultants.

Clients look for consultants who can add real value by delivering impartial solutions that achieve measurable results. The best guarantee of such consultants is the CMC award, the internationally portable consultancy award.

The IC is the only UK organisation accredited by the ICMCI to award CMC status.

Mapped to professional standards and achieved through a competency-based assessment process, CMC is a point of differentiation with a direct impact on your revenue potential.

  • Evidence of your ability to provide added-value solutions
  • Demonstrates your experience in delivering impartial, professional interventions
  • Endorsement that you meet the standards demanded for preferred supplier status

What's involved

To complete the CMC award you first need to be a Member or Fellow of the Institute of Consulting.

The process to complete the award is through what we call a Professional Discussion (PD). The PD route is straightforward compared with a full written assessment and offers greater opportunity for self reflection. Candidates will have a face to face meeting with one of our Assessors, who will assess the application based on the discussion.

Deliver/maintain CMC status

CMC remains current through a 3-yearly recertification process - to ensure that high standards of the award are maintained. In particular, recertification seeks to ensure that CMC holders are current with their competencies, continuing to keep up their skills and contributing to the profession and standing of consultancy as a profession.
