The MCA (Management Consultancies Association) will honour this year's best case studies in the consulting sector at the 13th annual MCA Management Awards. The awards are presented in 12 categories to consultants who provide added value to their clients' businesses and help them significantly improve their performance.
The UK's leading consulting industry body has now posted a call for submissions. The deadline for entries is October 17, 2008. The official entry pack and entry form can be downloaded at the Management Consultancies Association website.
All entries will be evaluated for clarity of language, application of management skills, achievement of project objectives, measurable results and quality of client relationship, before being shortlisted against judging criteria by Warwick Business School.
The best case studies across the categories will be celebrated at a gala dinner at the London Hilton on April 27, 2009. The case studies will also be featured in a special Management Today supplement.
“These awards will again provide an ideal platform for consulting firms to showcase their successes and highlight the value delivered to their clients,” said MCA’s new CEO Alan Leaman. “This year’s winners will continue to demonstrate the contribution management consultancy makes to business, the public sector and the economy as a whole – particularly important in a year of economic uncertainty.”
