Globally, Government & Quasi-Government organizations are increasingly facing challenges related to generating revenue and funds, managing budgets, meeting expectations of the public for world class infrastructure and services, improving processes to optimize quality and efficiency of services, competing with the private sector for recruiting, retaining and nurturing talent, building a service culture and automation of systems. Additionally, such organizations need to develop strategies and policies for often conflicting social, humanitarian, environmental and economic agendas. A third challenge is in adapting to emerging models such as public private partnerships, outsourcing and shared services.
All of this has forced Government and Quasi-Government to look closely at several areas such as overall strategy, customer service, enterprise and individual performance management, organizational effectiveness & structuring, change management, IT infrastructure and global benchmarking and best practices.
Cedar’s team has assisted several Government and Quasi-Government organizations such as sovereign wealth funds, finance departments, educational institutions, oil and gas corporations, and agencies and departments in planning, environment, transport and economic development among others.
Cedar’s work for such organizations include developing strategy and Balanced Scorecards, realigning organization structures, developing individual performance measures, improving processes and IT systems, conducting global benchmarking and market assessments. By drawing on our private sector experience and by leveraging our expertise of the Balanced Scorecard framework, we work to not only assist Government & Quasi–Government organizations in the formulation of strategic objectives, but also in their successful implementation.
