The Consultant Quality Initiative (CQI) was designed to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) select the right management consultants to assist them in their business upgrading journey. Establishing a base of certified consultants provides SMEs with greater assurance in terms of the level of quality and professionalism in the partners they engage.
Certified management consultants have to comply to a professional code of conduct that outlines principles such as:
Requesting permission when using proprietary information
Maintaining impartiality with stakeholders; avoiding instances with conflict of interest; recommending best fit solutions for the client
Articulating project details (scope, timeline, deliverables), project costs, and terms and conditions, clearly to the client
Respecting strict confidentiality of the client’s data, including intellectual property created during the engagement
Upholding professional and honourable conduct for the management consultancy profession
