WHY THE FOUNDATION WAS ESTABLISHED
The Foundation for Excellence in Management Consulting is borne of a commitment by AMCF, the Association of Management Consulting Firms, to advance the practice of management and the art and science of management consulting. As interest in the field has grown, ways of studying and understanding it have grown as well. AMCF established the Foundation to permit financing of important projects to enhance this understanding.
The Foundation may fund projects already under way, or initiate new ones. Projects may be in the form of research, educational offerings, professional development or training programs, scholarships, and seminars. One example of the Foundation's initiatives is the Richard Metzler Scholarship Award. Between one and four scholarships are given annually to graduate school students who exemplify a commitment to the profession, his/her community and to the understanding of the consultant's role as change agent.
