The Institute of Management Consultants and Trainers (IMC-Jordan) held a specialized workshop on the 14th of June to launch its “Management Consultants and Trainers Classification System” and introduce the “Benefits of Management Consulting” and “Best Practices” documents.
The objective of the workshop was to highlight IMC-Jordan’s project, financed by the European Union (EU) in cooperation with Jordan Enterprise Development Corporation (JEDCO), which aims to “Expand the outreach and visibility of IMC-Jordan, its members, and their services locally and regionally”.
IMC-Jordan’s Classification System was developed by our full member, Mr. Basel Saliba, and supervised by the international consultant and CMC® holder, Mr. Ljubomir Trajkovski, to categorize the offerings of management consultants and trainers. The system serves as a Business to Business (B2B) data bank that provides a summary of subject matter capabilities and attains local, regional, and international visibility. Our data bank is growing by the day, and we will continue building the Classification System data bank of successful consultants and trainers.
The “Benefits of Management Consulting” and “Best Practices” documents were developed by our full member, Mr. Laith Tseganoff, and supervised by the international consultant, Mr. Ljubomir Trajkovski, and they aim to promote and establish a criterion of how a management consultant and/or trainer should operate, and thereof provide the recipients of the services with the key measurement indicator. They also aim to serve as a general guideline of professional conduct for management consultants/trainers including but not limited to; benefits of professionalism, quality assurance deliverables, reduction of risks, elimination of recurring errors and reduction of ethical conflicts of interest and dilemmas, etc. These documents generally aim to provide the prospective clients with general guidelines which should answer the most common questions clients face when seeking to benefit from the management consulting services.
Additionally, the Best Practices document aims to promote and set the criteria and best practices of how clients should approach their activities of procuring Management Consulting Services available in the market through outlining the steps of; defining their requirements and expectations, allocating, selecting and contracting management consultants, managing the consulting assignment/project and finally evaluating the success of any given consulting assignment/project.
Commenting on the workshop, our Vice Chairman Wasfi Al-Masri, said: “We consider this workshop one of the principle stations of this strategic project that was initiated by IMC-Jordan eight months ago with the objective of spreading awareness amongst companies and corporations regarding the best practices and the benefits of management consulting and training and how to benefit from the Classification System of IMC-Jordan.”
