IS Consultancy Practice Overview
IS Consultancy Practice provides delegates with the skills they need to act as either an external or internal information systems consultant. These skills may be in support of their primary role, such as business analyst, or as a stand alone consultancy role. A comprehensive range of topics are covered, including:
- The structure of the IS/IT industry and the role of IS consulting
- Management of the customer relationship
- Assignment structure, management and control
- Management of people and relationships
- Conducting a consulting assignment
- Managing the quality of consulting assignment
During the course, delegates will be encouraged to apply these and other techniques in the context of a typical assignment. The stages of this assignment will include: Gaining Entry, Contracting and Assignment Initiation, Identifying Problems and Requirements, Diagnosis and Solution Definition, Implementing and Taking Action, Closing and Review.
This course is delivered by trainers who bring their substantial experience of practical consultancy and change projects to the programme. The case study on which the course is built is based on a genuine consultancy assignment. A very comprehensive manual, containing detailed information about consultancy techniques and providing references for further reading, is supplied as part of the course.
This course prepares candidates to sit the examination for the ISEB Certificate in IS Consultancy. This involves a two-hour, closed book examination, followed by a 45 minute oral examination.
