What happens when great minds actually don’t think alike?

Disruptive innovation

Disruption is changing the way the world works. It’s happening quickly. And it’s creating opportunity, if you can keep up and even get ahead of it.

That’s why we’ve established a dedicated Global Innovation team led by Jeff Wong, EY Global Chief Innovation Officer. The team is focused on understanding external forces changing our world and how to do things differently in 6 months, 3 years, 10 years and beyond.

Applying start-up thinking to today’s (and tomorrow’s) business challenges

In this shifting landscape, we are challenging ourselves to embrace disruption and think differently for our clients. How? By combining the experience of our global Tax, Accounting, Advisory and Transactions professionals (the “suits”) with start-up thinking (the “jeans”). This “suits+jeans” approach applies an entirely new mindset for today's challenges.

Globally connected; channeling emerging technologies

Our global network of EY teams and innovation centers are creating powerful ideas for organizations and ourselves, especially around opportunities coming from artificial intelligence, blockchain, robotics and data and analytics.

The disruption of new technologies has now laid the foundation to build inclusive economies where the passion of people is unleashed, to make even more impactful contributions to their global community.”

Jeff Wong, EY Global Chief Innovation Officer


We’re thinking about how to harness the external forces changing our world and our profession.
