Global Partnerships: Expanding the Reach and Impact of Management Consulting Excellence

The CMC-Global Institute, established in 2013 by the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI), is a non-profit, volunteer-driven beacon of knowledge and standards in the management consulting industry. Our foundational purpose is to extend the reach of ICMCI’s vision to regions across the globe where affiliated institutes are yet to be established. Currently, we collaborate with 48 institutes worldwide, but our mission transcends these boundaries: more than 170 countries and territories are included in our jurisdiction.

Our core objective is to elevate awareness within the business community and society at large about the pivotal role of internationally recognized standards in management consulting. We are dedicated to promoting the essence of a competent, professional management consultant, underscoring the importance of education and certification for those who serve the business community as experts. Our threefold mission encompasses Awareness, Education, and Assurance, particularly focusing on regions without a local Management Consulting national organization.

At the CMC-Global Institute, our partnership programs are not just an extension of our mission; they are the vital channels through which we disseminate the ethos of Best Practices in Consulting globally. We seek to forge alliances with esteemed organizations and individuals who share our vision and commitment. This includes:

– **Universities and Business Schools:** By collaborating with academic institutions, we aim to integrate cutting-edge consulting methodologies and standards into curricula, preparing the next generation of consultants with a global mindset and a commitment to excellence.

**Trainers and Content Creators:** We partner with trainers and thought leaders who bring innovative, practical content that enhances the skills and knowledge of practicing consultants, ensuring they are equipped to meet the dynamic challenges of the business world.

**Commerce and Industry Chambers:** Our collaboration with these chambers allows us to engage directly with the business community, offering insights and standards that elevate the consulting profession and contribute to sustainable business practices.

**Business Event Organizers:** By participating in and contributing to business events, we extend our reach, sharing knowledge and best practices with a broader audience, fostering a culture of continuous learning and professional development in the consulting industry.

**Business and Professional Publications:** Through partnerships with newspapers and magazines, we aim to amplify our message, sharing insights, trends, and success stories that highlight the value and impact of professional management consulting.

In essence, our partnerships are more than collaborations; they are a synergy of efforts and visions, aimed at nurturing a global community that values and upholds the highest standards in management consulting. We invite organizations and individuals who resonate with our mission to join us in this endeavor, contributing to a world where management consulting is synonymous with excellence, ethics, and enduring impact into Society as a whole.
