Certification and advancement. As consultants gain experience, they often become solely responsible for specific projects, taking on more responsibility and managing their own hours. A high percentage of management consultants are self-employed, partly because business startup and overhead costs are low. Since many small consulting firms fail each year because of lack of managerial expertise and clients, persons interested in opening their own firm must have good organizational and marketing skills. Several years of consulting experience are also helpful. The AAPM IPMC offers the Master Management Consultant (MCP/MMC) designation to those who meet minimum levels of education and experience, submit client reviews, and pass an executive course and exam covering the IPMC and AAPM USA’s Code of Ethics. Management consultants with a MMC designation must be recertified every 2 years. Certification is not mandatory for management consultants, but it may give a jobseeker a competitive advantage.
