As a business completely committed to consulting, Openside is proud to be an Associate Member Firm of The Management Consultancies Association (MCA).
We are regularly asked to speak at MCA events and often serve on their expert panels.
In addition we recently authored the MCA’s Guide to Professional Development in Consulting Firms (2017) and helped to launch the Consulting Excellence Academy, a platform for professional development resources and debate, targeted at Consulting Excellence Champions and budget holders for HR, talent management and L&D within MCA member firms.
Who are the MCA?
The MCA is the representative body for management consultancy firms in the UK and has been at the heart of the UK Consulting Industry since 1956. Their mission is to promote the value of management consultancy for the economy and society as a whole, with membership comprising around 60% of the UK consulting industry, employing 38,000 consultants.
For more than 25 years, Openside have trained thousands of management consultants worldwide in the essential cognitive and behavioural skills required for success in consulting. As such, we are ideally placed to support the objectives of the MCA and the management consulting industry.
