Management consultants often operate in one of two modes: feast or famine. In feast mode they are often too busy to invest in professional development activities, which can lead to further consulting work. In famine mode—between clients—they are often so focused on marketing themselves and paying the bills that they again have little time to invest in themselves. This necessary but shortsighted focus results in fewer long-term engagements.
Exemplar Global has come up with a solution to help management consultants even out these two extremes by helping them invest in themselves through professional certification as a certified management systems consultant. This investment helps boost business by demonstrating competency to consult in management systems.
Many organizations seek the support of external consultants to develop, implement, and maintain their ISO management system. Consultants are engaged to establish management systems, prepare policies, write procedures, develop documentation, and conduct training and internal audits. An external consultant can play a critical role in shaping the management system of a business, with the consultation often completed in preparation for accreditation audits.
Exemplar Global’s Management Consultant certification program gives management systems consultants the international recognition they need to stand out from the crowd. Through extensive examination of your knowledge, work experience, and competence to consult, Exemplar Global Management Consultant certification demonstrates a solid understanding of management systems.
The Management Consultant certification program is suited to professionals who consult with other individuals or organizations to design, develop, implement, maintain, or improve management systems. On a broader level, the program is suited to those working in quality teams and are responsible for implementing or managing a quality management system.
The Management Consultant certification program offers these individuals the ultimate professional enhancement and provides a unique point of difference.
Exemplar Global’s Management Consultant personnel certification program has been developed to:
- Assist organizations to select qualified management consultants.
- Enhance the professional recognition of management consultants.
