“CMC” The Mark of Excellence

When selecting a management consultant, executives are will advised to seek individuals who meet the profession’s standards of competence and ethics. The CMC designation is a valuable aid in this guest. Certification by the Institute of Management Consultants is the mark of excellence among management consulting professionals.

The Institute was founded in 1968 by the principal associations in the consulting field to establish publicly recognized standards of competence and professional conduct for the individual management consultant. Candidates for Institute Certification undergo a thorough investigation of their consulting experience: they are interviewed by a panel of senior consultants to verify their competent; and they must pass a written examination evidencing their knowledge of the Institute’s Code of Ethics.

A Code of Ethics

CMC’s pledge in writing to abide by the Institute’s Code of Ethics. Their adherence to the Code signifies voluntary assumption of self-discipline above and beyond the requirement of law. Key provisions of the Code require that CMCs:

  • Render impartial, independent advice
  • Accept only those client engagements they are qualified to perform
  • Agree with the client in advance on the basis for professional charges
  • Develop realistic and practical solution to client problems.

The Institute enforces the Code by receiving and investigating complaints of violations and by taking disciplinary action, including revocation of certification against any member who is found guilty of a Code violation.
