Creation of Institute of Management Consulting, IMC Armenia, its vision and mission
The Institute of Management Consulting, IMC Armenia, is a not-for-profit organization registered in December 2011. The readiness of Armenian consultants meeting international professional standards, combined with support from EBRD BAS Armenia to promote international best practices in Armenia, triggered an active group of local consultants to unite their efforts in developing the Business Development Services market.
IMC Armenia mission is to promote excellence and ethics in management consulting in Armenia through continuous professional development, international certification, networking and raising value, quality and benefits to local and international clients. One of our primary goals is to obtain membership to the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI), enabling IMC Armenia to deliver the prestigious, internationally-recognized Certified Management Consultant (CMC) accreditation.
IMC Armenia vision is to become one of the driving forces for the development of knowledge economy in the country and to promote management consulting services in domestic and export markets.
To serve the realization of the Institute’s mission and vision and with great input of BAS Armenia in March of 2012 “Core Consultancy Skills Essentials” first training for local management consultants was organized. As a result of the training 20 participants were awarded internationally renowned CMCE certification thus positively influencing on the local consulting market.
