What does it mean to be a professional and a management services professional? Is this just an indication of how one’s time is spent? Does it say anything about one’s approach to helping, advising or working for others? Should a client, employer or colleague have different expectations, or even higher expectations, of a person who claims to be a professional, or who is a member of a management related professional institute or association? What does professionalism and professional conduct mean in relation to management services and the management professions? In answering these and other questions we will look at views expressed by some of those who have thought and written about the evolution of occupational groups into professions since Victorian times.
