Working with an AXELOS Consulting Partner

AXELOS Consulting Partners (ACPs) are the only individuals or organizations accredited by AXELOS to provide consulting services relating to our best practice portfolio products including ITIL®, PRINCE2® and RESILIA.

To contact an ACP, see our List of Consulting Partners.

To find out how to become an ACP, see our AXELOS Consulting Partners section.

What are the benefits of using an ACP?

  • Unique solutions that reflect your circumstances and aspirations
  • Speed, because the consultancy team (unlike the in-house management) isn’t distracted by other tasks
  • Knowledge of ‘best practice’ and effective solutions from within the client’s industrial/commercial sector
  • Exposure to expertise derived from other industries and sectors
  • Provision of specific technical skills that are non-existent or in short supply in-house, and often the transfer of such skills to in-house staff
  • Change management skills enhanced by the consultant’s position as independent and objective.

Who are the ACPs?

ACPs are professional consulting organizations that work with clients to develop their capabilities in Portfolio, Programme and Project Management (PPM), IT Service Management (ITSM), and cyber resilience. Many of our consulting partners also offer training in AXELOS product areas to equip people within organizations with the essential skills to implement planned change.

They are the only people authorized to conduct the full P3M3® assessments that provide evidence-based recommendations for improvements.You can recognize a P3M3 ACP by their digital badge. These badges contain details of their certification and can be used to confirm its validity.

ACPs can also help with the high level assessments for the ITIL® Maturity Model and P3M3 self-assessments and will evaluate your organization in conjunction with internally-developed models, to develop the processes and frameworks to enable implementation of improvements.

AXELOS intends to provide maturity models for additional products in the future and, once available, only ACPs will be permitted to deliver the consultancy-led assessments.

ACPs have demonstrated their commitment to Global Best Practice by joining the ACP Programme which provides these consulting organizations with the latest AXELOS approved material. You can therefore be confident in the credibility and authority of these organizations to assess your own business.

There are several areas in which ACPs can help your organization:

ITIL Consultants

Our ITIL ACPs offer consultancy and assurance services across IT Service Management including software development, evaluation of IT resources, processes and investment and IT security and resilience.

PPM Consultants

All AXELOS Consulting Partners are experienced in managing and delivering change across sectors, and as such, the majority of our consulting partners are licensed to deliver P3M3 assessments. Our PPM consulting partners also offer advisory services in all aspects of business change such as business case development, management of risk and management of value.

Cyber Security Consultants

Our RESILIA consulting partners can advise on multiple levels of cyber security including cyber risk management, strategy, governance, physical and personnel security.
