Organisations work with us through a range of engagement options, including bespoke strategic consultancy, talent and leadership development, and consortium membership. We can also help them to find the blend of approaches that works best for them, to further enrich knowledge transfer and practical actions.

Whilst we predominantly work with clients in manufacturing and technology industries, our knowledge and skills are transferable and effective across other industries such as healthcare, not-for-profit and education.

Our profits are gifted to the University of Cambridge to fund future research.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

“Working with people from Cambridge University has undoubtedly brought a fresh and creative perspective to our product development approach. Often if you engage a large consultancy firm, you can risk engaging multiple consultants and a not inconsiderable bill. Businesses sometimes need a lighter touch and a guiding hand in the right direction. IfM Engage is a real ambassador for such an approach and is a credit to the University.”
