The SIA have had difficulty in defining what exactly constitutes a 'Consultant' and rightly so.
In my eyes, this can only be gained through experience. There is no 'instant' fix from a quick course.
Consultancy involves assessments, advice and guidance with recommendations, oversight and implementation.
You don't get that from a course regardless of what it's called.
I would like to add something also if I may..? I viewed a proposed syllabus of training for Consultants, I can't quite remember where I saw it..? It was embarrassing..! I mean to the point of whoever controls this industry at the moment thinking or deeming that the industry is full of 'stupid' people..! Just as the SIA did when they conducted their original 'get to know you' interviews but maybe we [the SIA] should add that "we have little or no business fcuking Acumen"...
Ive been trying to put a reply up on here for ages but the my laptop is playing up.
Thank you for the feed back as always.
