Consulting training framework

A framework enables an organisation to position courses within a progressive training structure. It can put training into context; contribute to a recognised formal qualification; enhance motivation to participate; and facilitate the transfer of training into performance back at work. The framework that we use for consultant training is shown here.

Many practices use this framework as a starting point for developing their own consulting training framework. Alternatively, we can help you to develop one.  Contact us.
