CICG was founded with a particular focus upon "start-up" ventures and the core challenges faced by small to mid-size bussinesses in earning superior profits and consistently staying ahead of the competition in the domestic, foreign and government procurement markets. It has been stated that the fundamental distinction between strategy and operations is that strategy addresses the question of "What do we do?", while operations is concerned with "How do we do it?".
