consultant or advisor
Consultant or Advisor
  • Some degree of overlap.
  • IBA advisers tended to focus on start up and small companies.
  • Consultants more likely to be involved with larger organisations.
  • Distinctions less clear over time.
  • Advisers tend not to implement solutions.
  • Consultants may both diagnose and implement solutions.
project stages
Project Stages
  • Phase 1: Map the 8 SFEDI Business Support standards against:

- The Management Leadership NOS;

- The Institute of Business Consulting Management;

- Consultancy Competency Framework;

- Investors in People Competency definitions.

  • Phase 2: Consult on the gaps that emerged from the mapping.
  • Phase 3: Incorporate the consultation responses into a final set of recommendations, which define the next phase of work.
the key objectives
The Key Objectives
  • Short term: To identify the linkages and confirm the gaps between the present set of standards.
  • Mid Term: Development of new standards for use by consultants and advisors.
  • Long Term: New standards published that will enable consultants and business advisors to meet the needs of business, increasing UK economic productivity.
  • Step 1. Use SFEDI as the control and map by affiliating the titles within each Framework.
  • Step 2. Look for affiliations between the core standard title, the description underpinning each standard and the descriptions which underpinned each title in each of the other frameworks.
  • Step 3. Accept/Reject data for mapping and identify gaps in the standards.
  • Accept/ Reject. Tempered decision using judgment, interpretation and experience. Our decisions were based on the words written into each standard; no attempt was made to make assumptions about any information that was not stated in each framework.
constraints of mapping
Constraints of Mapping
  • The standards or frameworks omit any consensus over what they should contain.
  • The fundamental strengths, compatibility and practical usefulness of the standards were obscured by variations on common themes.
  • Some of the standards are competency frameworks, whilst others are competences that build on skills and knowledge.
  • Assigning reliable measures to the competency frameworks to show the differences between high and average performance is difficult.
  • The standards obscure their true benefit for business.
interim recommendations
Interim Recommendations
  • The development of a single framework of standards for the future that is common to all business consulting and advisor specialisations.
  • They should be easily transferable between and within different sectors.
  • These future standards should build on the gaps identified from this mapping once refined after consultation.
