Welcome to the temporary web site of the Centre for Management Consulting Excellence. Very shortly we hope to have a long term, functional web site operating.
Who we are
The Centre has been established by the Worshipful Company of Management Consultants.
Education is one of the primary objectives of Livery Companies and the establishment of the Centre is the Company’s contribution in its own domain of interest. It is well placed to lead this initiative, with its broad membership from among the management consulting community.
The first Director of the Centre is Calvert Markham, a Past Master of the Company and Visiting Professor in the practice of management consultancy at Cass Business School.
The Centre for Management Consulting Excellence is the community that facilitates the development and sharing of research and experience in management consulting thinking and practice to help practitioners to be better able to serve client need.
Management consulting is a major business in the UK turning over about £9bn pa. The benefits that management consultants bring to their clients are a multiple of this and they have a major impact on UK productivity.
Sharing know-how and commercialising research of value to the practice of consultancy is therefore vital, but there is only limited engagement between academics and among practitioners. The Centre aims, therefore, to identify and share the most important new ideas for management consultants, thereby developing their performance to the benefit of their clients and the economy in general. It will provide a forum for practitioners to share the fruits of their experience and academics to share the results of their research.
