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.
Disruption is changing the way the business world works. We’re helping to change the way the business world thinks.
