The assessment allows you to undertake a self-assessment against the competence framework for management consultants and ensure alignment to professional standards. The tool highlights potential areas for professional development.

The assessment is undertaken against an internationally recognised Consulting Competence Framework for management consultants. The tool assists users to identify their strengths and weaknesses, develop their skill sets and broaden their opportunities in the consulting marketplace.



The Institute of Management Consultants New Zealand believes that the CMC qualification remains at the cornerstone of its professional and membership policies.

Management consultants who are members of the Institute have a professional duty to consistently offer skills relevant to their client's needs.

The Member Guidelines for Professional Development are provided as a tool to assist members to build their competence, develop skill sets and broaden their opportunities in the consulting marketplace. In doing so members will create for themselves a competitive advantage over consultants who simply rest on their laurels.

Members are required to plan and record the professional development activities undertaken to keep their skills relevant.
