ICW is frequently asked to recommend possible external support for implementation that goes beyond the thought leadership and knowledge transfer approaches of the Institute, which are focused on providing advice, guidance and training to support implementation teams. In response to this situation the Institute has initiated a programme to identify those business consultant organisations that have demonstrated an appropriate level of competence and in-depth understanding of the principles, requirements and intent of the new standard together with complimentary activities in support of effective collaboration. At the same time the Consultant Affiliation Programme approach can be seen by consultant organisations to raise awareness of their capabilities across and beyond the ICW network, publicise their experience and enhance their business opportunities whilst supporting the thought leadership and ethos of the institute. It is not the intent of the Institute to make specific recommendations in favour of any particular organisation but will seek to offer a portfolio of those, which in its view, based on experience and assessment can offer a value based service.
