The ICMCI was founded in 1987 "to promote a closer working relationship between all management consulting institutes or organizations primarily dedicated to the registration or certification of individual management consultants."
The purpose of this closer working relationship was to accelerate the achievement of mutual goals of the national institutes, particularly to assist them in raising the standards of the profession of management consulting.
Since 1987 the Council and its national member institutes have agreed on an International Code of Professional Conduct, international definitions within the profession, an international Common Body of Knowledge, minimum certification requirements and a basis for reciprocity between member institutes. By the end of 1991, almost all nations with mature management consulting certification processes were represented on the Council.
In partnership with our members, the national certifying institutes, the mission of ICMCI is:
To these ends ICMCI strives to earn recognition as the authoritative international organization for the development of world-class professional standards, and to create the CMC designation as the international benchmark for individual management consultants.
