ISO 20700 Self Declaration Checklist, Management Consultants

The CMC-Global ISO 20700:2017 Self-Declaration Checklist provides a value-added service offering for management consultants who will be authorised and recognised as able to self-declare their projects with their clients that their processes conform to the new International Standard ISO 20700, by an independently recognised authority.


ISO 20700:2017 Guidelines for Management Consultancy has been developed to improve transparency and understanding between management consultancy service providers and their clients, ultimately leading to better outcomes from consultancy work. ISO 20700 was developed by management consultants for management consultants with CMC-Global (ICMCI) as the self-regulatory body of the management consulting profession, taking the lead in initiating the production of the Standard.

CMC-Global has now developed a Self-Declaration Checklist to the Standard to provide practical and hands on support for management consultants in demonstrating their work according to the ISO 20700 and has accredited IMC Australia to deliver this training to all management consultants practising within Australia.


 This course is open to all internal and external management consultants practising in Australia or New Zealand. Please note that while non-management consultants are welcome to attend, only practising management consultants are permitted to use the Checklist and display the 'Trained In' logo.

•    Understand the scope and application of ISO 20700 as it applies to a management consulting project

"An extremely worthwhile course to meet and collaborate with fellow consultants providing broad views and discussion of experience and contemporary challenges.  Looking forward to future opportunities and engagement and fostering the adoption of ISO 20700 with clients and colleagues”.

Nick Hadjinicolaou MIMC CMC | Director iLearning Solutions

“This short course on the ISO20700 standard for consulting was a great eye opener regarding the things I should have thought about and didn’t; it confirmed some of the things I was doing but could have been doing better; and answered many of the questions I still had about the profession and where it was heading.  It was great to meet other experienced consultants to see what they do and how they do it.  A great learning opportunity.  Thanks IMC for hosting this event. “
