Global Affiliation

International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI)

AICMCI, founded in 1987, promotes a close working relationship between all management consulting institutes or concerns primarily dedicated to the registration or certification of individual management consultants. 

ICMCI is responsible for the development and maintenance of the global Management Consulting Common Body of Knowledge. The Common Body of Knowledge describes the core competencies all consultants must demonstrate. The Common Body of Knowledge is about knowledge and the associated learning and is not a framework for determining competency. This is addressed by the competency framework, the description of which is contained in the body of knowledge.
ICMCI is recognised by the United Nations as a Non Government Organisation (NGO) with special status on consulting issues.

Global Interaction : In addition to being a member of ICMCI, IMCI is also part of the movement on the regional front that has manifested itself as the Asia Pacific Conference of Management Consultants (APCMC). Biennial conferences are held in one of the participating countries.
In 1989, New Delhi was the venue for the first APCMC. Subsequent conferences were held in Singapore, Australia and Malaysia. IMCI was again host for the fifth APCMC in Chennai in 1997. The last held APCMC was hosted by IMCI at The Taj Krishna Hotel at Hyderabad on the 8th, 9th & 10th of December 2003.
