IQ Gain Approval for the Re-Registration of the UK’s Oldest Management Institute

Industry Qualifications (IQ) is pleased to announce that Companies House have agreed to the re-registration of the Institute of Administrative Management, after a consultation with stakeholders.

Commenting on the news, Raymond Clarke, Chief Executive of IQ, said “We would like to thank key members and organisational partners of IAM for their support during the re-registration process. This next twelve months are very important in the creation of a forward-looking, engaging Institute, culminating in the centenary celebrations for the IAM in 2015.

We have spent the last few months gathering the views and opinions of former members, and those that might be future members, to fuse the best of the past with the expectations of a modern and dynamic Institute. Whilst much of the focus for representative bodies serving the management sector in recent times has been on the issue of leadership, we believe that there is a real need to combine managerial and operational competence, and that the IAM can play a leading role in this arena”.

Unlike its previous manifestation, the new Institute will focus purely on membership services, with the qualifications activity being the responsibility of IQ, using the IAM brand for its management suite. The Institute will focus its resources on the development of regional and international membership networks, the provision of academic journals, the re-launch of Manager magazine and other membership benefits and services.

According to Clarke “Our target is to celebrate the centenary event with renewed confidence and energy, with the IAM clear of its role, and with the structures, services and vision in place to secure an international reputation as a leading authority on management development and representation”.

More details regarding the re-launch will be forthcoming shortly.
