Roots in Data
A meticulous commitment to data lies at the heart of everything Cicero Group does. The firm actively maintains its own in-house data gathering capabilities to ensure complete ownership of the information that drives every insight and client solution. The sophisticated, methodological analysis of this proprietary data serves as the foundation of the actionable strategies Cicero Group delivers to each client solution.
Cicero Group prides itself on going far beyond a “glossy report”. Indeed, the firm’s focus on data empowers it to provide actionable insights and help clients identify opportunities to implement lasting changes to their organizations. As the firm says on its website, “we believe no strategic decision can be made without the right context and perspective, without the right data to inform the decision.” Additionally, the firm incorporates mechanisms for ongoing feedback to enhance every engagement and ensure continuous, data-supported improvements.
No Simple Solutions
Cicero Group understands that there are no simple solutions to optimize for success. To that end, the firm focuses on building capacity within each of its clients’ organizations. Rather than providing short-term insights or one-off action items before pitching a new project, Cicero Group works with clients to identify the right processes and tools to develop the internal capacities to support sustainable change.
Cicero Group lends its expertise to clients across a variety of services. As strategy consultants, the firm helps clients execute successful strategies that create value for their businesses, including M&A pipeline development and strategy, data strategy, price optimization, profitability assessment, work capital reduction, SG&A optimization, and growth strategy development.
As part of the firm’s operations services, Cicero Group provides customer experience optimization, lean business transformation, manufacturing & supply chain consulting, operations performance management, organization alignment, and service & support optimization. The firm also guides clients through various transformations and consults on change management, post-merger integration, process mapping, and organizational restructuring.
Cicero Group is also proud to consult in the social sector through Cicero Social Impact, an arm of the firm that collaborates with mission-driven organizations in the social sphere to maximize their impact on the communities they serve. Additionally, the firm consults with government agencies and institutions of K-12 and higher education.
