A practical approach to acquiring management consultancy skills for those seeking positions within management consultancy practices, or for others interested in managing consultancy projects with their employing organisations. Rather than a traditional dissertation, you will undertake two consultancy projects with established businesses, allowing you to help an organisation achieve its goals through the development of both teamwork and negotiation skills.
Aims and Objectives
On completion of this module, you will be able to:
Understand the consultancy process and roles within it
Apply project, programme and management skills and ethics during management consultancy activities
Use a set of analytical consultancy tools and techniques
Understand the fundamentals of facilitation skills and consultative workshops
Utilise information gathering and research methods to support consultancy activities
Develop interpersonal and communication skills
Establish and manage a management consultancy.
In terms of providing practical, hands-on management consultancy skills, this module is like no other. Your two consultancy projects will be completed with a client organisation and will either be two integrated parts of one large project, from diagnosis to recommendations, or two separate projects. The projects will either be for the same organisation, or separate organisations, as specific issues and circumstances dictate. Either option offers you a richly rewarding experience.
