What is the Enterprise Singapore Consultant Quality Initiative (CQI)?
Management consultants play a pivotal role in Singapore’s enterprise development landscape. They help enterprises solve issues, create value, identify opportunities for productivity improvements and enhance business performance to achieve sustainable growth.
A management consultant is one who:
- helps to gather and analyse relevant data
- diagnoses your company’s operational and/or business issues
- designs and recommends appropriate solutions to improve your company’s performance
Consultant Quality Initiative (CQI)
The Consultant Quality Initiative (CQI) was designed to help SMEs select the right management consultants to assist them in their business upgrading journey. Through the establishment of a base of certified consultants, SMEs now have greater assurance in terms of the level of quality and professionalism in the partners they engage.
It is important to note that If your company is an SME applying for the Capability Development Grant (CDG), or the upcoming Enterprise Development Grant (EDG) support for consultancy-related costs, you need to engage a management consultant with the Consultant Quality Initiative (CQI) certification.
Why Use Consultant Quality Initiative (CQI) Certified Consultants?
Certified management consultants have to comply with a professional code of conduct that outlines the following principles:
Requesting permission when using proprietary information
Maintaining impartiality with stakeholders; avoiding instances with conflict of interest; recommending best fit solutions for the client
Articulating project details (scope, timeline, deliverables), project costs, and terms and conditions, clearly to the client
Respecting strict confidentiality of the client’s data, including intellectual property created during the engagement
Upholding professional and honourable conduct for the management consultancy profession
