Technical Symposium 2019

This symposium will focus on the development of new management consulting services. It is open both to Company Members and Non-Members to book.

The 2019 Technical Symposium run by the Centre for Management Consulting Excellence will focus on the process by which new management consulting services are developed.

Our research shows that simply repackaging the “same old same old” is not enough. The rapidly changing business environment means that consultants need to upgrade their services and develop new ones if they are to survive. The process of identifying and developing new products is commonplace in manufacturing, but of a different order in consulting, where the product is intangible.

In this year’s Technical Symposium, we will be examining the process of product and service development, learning from a variety of industries with the intention of identifying useful practices for the future.

We are delighted to welcome as our guest speaker Shailendra Vyakarnam, Director of the Bettany Centre for Entrepreneurship at Cranfield University who has recently published “The Scale-up Manual: Handbook for Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Teams and Firms”. Shai will be building on his research to both inform and provoke thinking about the future of consultancy. He will be joined by:

  • Anthony Shingleton, EMEA Executive Regional Manager at Simpler Consulting, an IBM company
  • James Woudhuysen, Visiting Professor of Innovation and Forecasting at London South Bank University
  • Dr James Wilk, Associate Lecturer in Philosophy at St Edmund Hall, Oxford and Research Director of Interchange Research

Come and join us for what we expect to be a lively and informative session on the evening of 28 February 2019 at Coventry University’s London Campus, with the opportunity to continue the discussion over refreshments after the presentations. Doors will be open from 6.00pm and lhe lecture is scheduled to start at 6.30 pm.
