Armenian business consultants received training on professional skills and ethics through the “Business Advisory Service” project of the EBRD, supported by the EU.
The European Union provided €10,000,000 for consulting and expert assistance for micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, and also for developing the stable markets for consulting services in these countries.
After the training course held in 2011 for business consultants from the three countries of the South Caucasus in Tbilisi, Georgia, the “Business Advisory Service” (BAS) invited “Exponential Training and Assessment Limited”, a UK-based consulting company, to run “Core Consultancy Skills and Professional Ethics” courses. The first training session took place on 28 March in Yerevan within the framework of the BAS programme of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
With an aim to contribute to the development of a sustainable infrastructure for local business advisory services and to the transfer of international best practices to local consultants, BAS in Armenia is improving consulting performance as part of the “train-the-trainers” principle. In the words of participants, they expect to learn new techniques and tools to be good consultants.
So far six Armenian business consultants have successfully obtained the “Certificate of Management Consultants’ Essentials” qualification of the UK Institute of Consultants, and three of them have since become Certified Management Consultants. Later, encouraged by BAS Armenia, the Armenian Institute of Management Consulting was established.
