ISO 20700:2017 Guidelines for Management Consulting Services – a world first
 
ISO 20700:2017 Guidelines for Management Consultancy Services is the first International Standard of its kind and ensures a consistent minimum quality in the provision of a service and transparency between the consultant and client.

To assist consultants to demonstrate compliance with the Standard, CMC-Global (ICMCI) has also developed the ISO 20700 Self-Declaration Checklist and has accredited IMC Australia to deliver training to all Australian and New Zealand management consultants. Click here to access the Events page and register for the next upcoming ISO 20700 training course to ensure you are fully conversant with the Standard and get exclusive access to the Checklist for use in your own practice.


Chapter Events

Our local IMC Chapters are looking forward to scheduling more in-person and blended events to allow local members to network and get to know each other.

Queensland Forum is our first Chapter event for 2021 on 25 February 2021.

Queensland Chapter Members can learn about ISO 20700, how to access and benefit from IMC’s arrangements with ServeGate for consulting opportunities, and learn first hand about Australia’s only formal qualification in consulting, the Diploma of Consultancy, from Tony Simmonds, Director of ITS Pty Ltd, the RTO delivering the Diploma.
