ISO 20700 – Guidelines for Management Consultancy Services

ISO 20700, Guidelines for Management Consultancy Services, aims to help management consultancy service providers (MCSPs) and their clients improve transparency and understanding of their consultancy assignments, in order to achieve better results. The appropriate application of this International Standard enables the service providers to reduce risk in management consultancy assignments, bring valuable expertise to an organization when initiating organizational growth and/or change and provide better value to its clients.
