Who should attend

The programme is designed for professionals and subject matter specialists who want to apply their expertise to help organisations analyse business problems, identify solutions and achieve them. It is also designed for individuals looking to leverage their skills and transition to an independent career. Experienced consulting practitioners who wish to improve or refresh their basic skills, insights and approaches are also welcome.

About the course

Specialist or technical expertise is not sufficient to be an effective consultant. You need skills, processes and models that frame your expertise so you can successfully deliver value to clients and improve organisational performance.

Programme overview

To be an effective consultant, you need skills, processes and models that frame your technical and specialist expertise so you can successfully deliver value to clients and improve organisational performance. On the programme, you will join other experts to professionalise your ability to deliver project outcomes and collaborate with others.

Delivered in partnership with Elevation Learning, the programme will enable you to identify business problems, propose value-added solutions, achieve desired outcomes, establish project goals, manage stakeholder expectations and build strong trust-based client relationships.

Focus and structure

The programme is informal, interactive and experiential which maximises learning. It provides fresh insights into effective approaches and covers proven consulting models and techniques which enhance competence and build confidence.

The structure and design of the programme is based on Elevation Learning’s proprietary CONSULT process, a five-stage model for project delivery. The process provides opportunities for you to experience all aspects of project delivery including client situation appraisal, building client relationships, influencing the client, working in teams, defining client added value, defining terms of reference, managing projects, problem-solving, developing recommendations, managing change, project implementation, reporting to the client and project closure.

As many opportunities as possible are provided for you to practise and develop your individual consulting skills. The programme uses a real-life consulting assignment to explore the project delivery process which enables you to refine and develop your thought processes as well as apply and receive feedback on your consulting skills.
