The Centre for Management Consulting Excellence is drawing together views of how management consultancy practice will need to evolve in coming years. On 28th February the Technical Symposium 2019 will take place at Coventry University London Campus. Simply repackaging the “same old same old” is not enough. The rapidly changing business environment means that consultants need to upgrade their services and develop new ones if they are to survive. The process of identifying and developing new products is commonplace in manufacturing, but of a different order in consulting, where the product is intangible. In this year’s Technical Symposium, we will be examining the process of product and service development, learning from a variety of industries with the intention of identifying useful practices for the future.

The guest speaker is Shailendra Vyakarnam, Director of the Bettany Centre for Entrepreneurship at Cranfield University who has recently published “The Scale-up Manual: Handbook for Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Teams and Firms”. Shai will be building on his research to both inform and provoke thinking about the future of consultancy. All welcome.
