Why is it best to Choose a
Certified Management Consultant

Ronald H. Wohl, the founder and CEO of In Plain English, is a Certified Management Consultant. What does that mean?

Since certifications are plentiful in business, you should know what is special about the CMC and the Institute of Management Consultants (IMC) from which it is granted.

What is a CMC?

The Certified Management Consultant (CMC) designation is awarded to a select group of consultants (only 10,000 worldwide) who have demonstrated that they produce substantive results, adhere to the IMC USA canon of ethics, and manage their practices professionally.

IMC USA participates in the 44-nation International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI), which sets the global standards of technical competence and professional conduct. CMCs must maintain this level of performance and stay current with global standards to be able to renew their certification every 3 years.

Hiring a Certified Management Consultant means that you and your project will benefit from a consultant who demonstrates of the highest level of competence, as well as:

All these give you confidence in knowing that the consultant you've chosen has passed the toughest certification in the profession and that the same professionalism will be demonstrated to you.

What is IMC?

IMC USA provides the only certification for individual management consultants in the US that conforms to the international standards of the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes. ICMCI sets global standards of technical competence and professional conduct for consultants in more than 40 nations.

IMC USA also provides, through national conferences, online resources, chapter events, and its diverse and experienced membership a full range of professional development opportunities. Finally, the collective talent and experience of the IMC USA network of consultants, many of whom are recognized experts in their disciplines or industries, provides a superior resource to help members increase value to their clients, enhance effectiveness of client organizations, and improve the quality of our communities.

What is our Code of Ethics?

Professional management consultants not only provide superior services to their clients, they do so in an ethical manner. IMC USA requires that members adhere to a Code of Ethics as a condition of membership and for certification. Ethical behavior, as defined by IMC and its global partner ICMCI, includes practices such as:

The Institute enforces the Code by investigating complaints of violations and by taking disciplinary action, including revoking the certification of any member who is found guilty of a Code violation.
