This is the result of the Erasmus + project “European Management Consultant - competency development programme” conducted in partnership from 4 European countries, i.e.: Poland, Denmark, Bulgaria and the Netherlands.
The proposed Competence Framework is based mainly on the ICMCI CMC Competence Framework.
Where appropriate the ICMCI CMC Competence Framework is expanded with input from other frameworks.
In particular it should be mentioned that parallel to developing the ICMCI CMC Competence Framework further work was done in describing how ability in the various competences and subcompetences provide value to clients. This work is included in supporting material from Institute of Consulting, UK, and Institute of Management Consultancy, USA. We have used this idea of value for the customer as an additional qualification of the requirements.
To meet the EN 16114 standard we have expanded the specification of requirements in all phases of the assignment life cycle.
Finally, we have provided extensions regarding activities for consultation, sparring and review with colleagues in all phases of an assignment in order to strengthen quality of consultancy services, and have increased focus on capability and continued learning and development in order to assure that consultants constantly stay current with client’s needs.
