ICG has categorised all of its methods by how reliable and safe the methods are to implement with varying degrees of accredited professional or method owner support. This means that we can guide our clients to choose methods that are either perfectly fit for purpose irrespective of budget or more appropriate for those with limited budget but needing guidance and templates that are safe to use with little supervision.
