ISO 20700:2017 Guidelines for management consultancy services is a standard developed for use as a guideline (not as a compliance standard) for the effective management of management consulting services.
This course provides an introduction and overview of the standard and is aimed at everyone who is involved in the Management Consulting Services Industry, either as a provider or user of services.
The course is video-based and is easy to follow. Please note that this is an introductory course and does not attempt to address every aspect and detail of the standard. There are two subsequent courses, the first of which (part 2) expands on the three-step lifecycle in detail and assists you with templates and quality reading material. The second (part 3) is focused on the assessment spreadsheet, which is in Excel format and assists you to check if you have covered all bases and are focusing at the appropriate level of detail for the size and complexity of the project you are dealing with.
Module 2 is not mandatory for you to become accredited as an ISO 20700 consultant but it is very useful. Clients can also do the introductory course and the assessment module in order to fully understand and appreciate what it takes to deliver a successful assignment from the client’s perspective
It is strongly advised that participants in the course acquire an official copy of the standard for reference purposes before commencing the course.
