Business India, October 19 – November 11, 1998

The Institute of Management Consultants of India, which is the apex body of management consultant professionals in India, is making rapid strides.

The association which has close to 800 members in the country has introduced standards of specialization which have been benchmarked to established international requirements.

Says Hiru Bijlani, president IMCI : “The IMCI has developed a rigorous system for certifying consultants, which is a self-imposed measure aimed standards of management consultancy.”

The institute will also train and upgrade the skills of its members by holding regular workshops. Bijlani is of the opinion that industry must not look out for consultants just on the basis of brand names. “They should shop around at the IMCI and choose the best consulant for their needs. Among the major institutional clients of IMCI are Coopers & Lybrand, Price Waterhouse, Fergusons, Andersen Consulting, TCS and others.
