Cedar Consulting
- by Jacob Jacob
Introduction

Cedar is a leading global management consulting firm with network offices in 15
countries, and over 500 professionals. Since 1985, its team has been assisting clients
in the areas of strategy, process, strategic HR, and IT. As a general management
consulting firm, it is able to assist clients across these areas in an integrated fashion \u2013
from formulation to execution. Its heritage includes being part of the former
Renaissance Worldwide, whose leadership included the creators of the Balanced
Scorecard \u2013 the world's leading strategy deployment and performance management
system. With hundreds of consulting projects executed globally over the years, across
industry sectors, Cedar's experienced team will successfully make strategy work for
you and your organization.

Business Solutions

Cedar is a general management consulting firm. It has significant capabilities in
developing best-in-class strategy. More importantly it recognizes the success of the
strategy depends on its execution, and that requires the ability to align processes, IT,
and HR with the overall strategy. Cedar is in a position to cover all these areas on an
integrated basis. Most consulting firms specializes in one of these areas, and the client
is left integrating the specialized recommendations of each of the advisors, and that's
normally where the execution starts to fall apart. Cedar on a fast track basis will
identify cross-functional issues, and develop recommendations for alignment. More
importantly, we often stay with the client through the execution in a project
management role with the specific responsibility of executing key recommendations.
70% of our business is repeat, and very often clients tell us the reason they come back
to us is because they know they can go to one firm who will address all key issues,
and lead a successful execution.

Company Strategy

Cedar is a growing consulting firm still at its nascent stage. It strategy is to grow
primarily in the Middle East and North American regions. It is involved in a
number of various domains and practices, hence not restricted to any one area.
They claim to be experts in implementing the balanced scorecard method for
strategic management.
There is no formal strategy mentioned anywhere hence I feel they would like to be
known as one of the leading consulting firms with in the next 5-10 years.
