More about IMPHIL
IMPHIL is the brainchild of a handful of Filipino professionals engaged in management consulting services in the Philippines. The idea for its creation stemmed from the realization that Filipino Consultants can make a marked difference in the development of their own country; from the perspective of knowing its culture, traits, history, needs, and the basic principle that Filipinos know best what can make their nation truly independent and genuinely sovereign. It was incorporated as a non-stock, non-profit organization in 1985.
IMPHIL is a member of the Confederation of Filipino Consultants (COFILCO), the umbrella organization of consulting organizations engaged in various technical fields of expertise. COFILCO is the government’s private sector appointed body tasked to accredit consulting firms bidding for projects. COFILCO has assigned IMPHIL to handle the accreditation of Consultants and the validation of claimed expertise and accomplishments.
Recently, IMPHIL has been given the authority to provide Certification to Filipino professionals as International Consultants by the ICMC, a globally recognized body of consulting practitioners. This will give Filipino Management Consultants a competitive edge in bidding for projects with institutions worldwide.
