European standard “Management Consultancy Services” EN 16114

For the first time, since September 2011, the management consulting profession can refer to a new standard, the European standard “Management Consultancy Services” EN 16114. The aim of this standard is to improve the transparency and understanding between clients and consultants. This should lead to better results for consulting projects and reduce barriers for the selection and use of consulting services.

Ilse Ennsfellner, CMC, Vice Chair of ICMCI and Chair of the Project Committee for the development of EN 16114, and spokesman in the Professional Association of Management Consultancy and IT, Robert Bodenstein, have contributed significantly to the development of this standard.
