Business Consulting and Support Standards Mapping Research


Report now available

The MSC recently mapped a range of standards in the area of Business Support and Consulting into an integrated framework. This encompassed a high level mapping of the eight SFEDI Business Support Standards against the Institute of Business Consulting Management Consultancy Competence Framework, the Management Standards Centre’s National Occupational Standards for Management and Leadership and the Investors in People Competency definitions.

The project included an online survey and four consultation events across the UK, all of which fed into the final report and its recommendations. The final report can be accessed through the links on the right, along with the SFEDI standards and a link to the Management and Leadership National Occupational Standards. The IBC Management Consultancy Competence Framework can be ordered from the IBC website here.

Based on the feedback received, the MSC aims to ultimately develop a single, simplified set of standards for the future that are common to all business support and consulting specializations and transferable between and within different sectors.
