The consulting activities of IIPM are structured under the operations of Center for Advanced Consulting & Research (CACR). This Center was incorporated in 1996, and is probably one of the only such Centers that have been able to develop a completely independent brand image. CACR has a strategic alliance with one of the biggest names in the consulting industry, Planman Consulting. Interestingly, Planman has been rated as India's largest multi-interest consulting group in the year 2001/2002. CACR started its operations as an offshoot of 25 years of research of the global economy undertaken by leading researchers and academicians globally. In all its business interests, CACR incorporates an extremely high level of consulting commitment for its clients. Wherever, whenever, however, CACR attempts to improve dramatically the process performance of global corporations through its consulting enterprise. Live case studies and industry examples of CACR's consulting solutions have become recommended reading at various institute across continents. Various papers published by CACR consultants have been noted and honored at diverse institutions and organizations.

Asian markets and industries. Further, the focus areas encompass Business Policy & Strategic Management, Corporate Restructuring, Business Process Re-engineering, Benchmarking, Quality and Process Controls. One of the critical focus areas of the division has been assisting organizations in reorienting their sales and marketing channels in accordance with corporate goals and objectives.

HRIC (Human Resource Intelligence Cell): The Human Resource Intelligence Cell was set up with the objective of consolidating all consulting activities of CACR that were related to human resources management & development. Over time, this resulted in certain functions becoming highly specialized and integrated into three separate units namely, Training & Development, Manpower Recruitments, and Personnel Consulting Services. These units, even though catering to the same clientele, perform highly focused functions that are still strategically separate from each other. Due to the heavy influx of experienced personnel in HRIC, our solutions often are criticized to be moving towards the quantitative realm. But to support the debate, HRIC balances its consulting solutions by employing extremely comprehensive problem analysis techniques, resulting in very pertinent and optimal solution sets for our clients.
POLAR Experiences (Planman Overseas Learning and Recreational Experiences): Polar Experiences is the travel Consulting and Destination Management unit of Planman Consulting. Our travel programs are designed to excite, educate, entertain, intrigue and delight the travelers. Our strength lies in the capacity to offer a wide variety of travel related services within India and to overseas destinations.
