Consultancy for Management Educators

Management consulting is an important part of the work of management educators alongside management education and research.

Consulting provides an ideal opportunity to exploit and market the body of knowledge, experience, and skills acquired through management education and research. It also provides the best opportunity for clinical practice, which generates and tests new ideas about management education and identifies and provides new areas and approaches to research.

By permanently and continuously reinforcing each other, management education, research, and consultancy form the so-called “magic triangle” of a management educator’s work portfolio. This helps educators to ensure ongoing personal growth and development while increasing the value-added they offer to the increasingly demanding and competitive intellectual services market.

The CEEMAN Consultancy for Management Educators (CME) Workshop covers four basic conceptual frameworks: the consultancy business as a whole, the consultancy process, the consultancy profession, and the integration of consultancy practice into the educational profession. In addition, the structure of the program respects the specifics of the consulting services provided to two major groups of clients: large firms and SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises).

Faculty on the CME program includes highly skilled and experienced consulting professionals. They have provided consultancy services worldwide from large multinational firms to SMEs, governments, and international organizations. They have also been involved in the development of consultancy skills and capabilities and institution building. Last, but not least, they have also been involved in management education.

CME faculty in 2003 and 2005 program editions have included:

  • Allan Gibb, Small Business Centre, Durham University, UK
  • Peter Kraljič, IEDC-Bled School of Management, Slovenia, and member of the McKinsey Advisory Council, Germany
  • Nenad Filipović, IEDC-Bled School of Management, Slovenia
