The EY-Parthenon sector approach

Every successful business strategy is underpinned by an in-depth understanding of industry dynamics and the competitive landscape in which it sits. EY-Parthenon sector professionals can share rich and differentiated market insights, since they have both the detailed industry knowledge of today and the big-picture opportunities of sector convergence tomorrow.

Learn more about EY-Parthenon’s nine sector teams:

  • Advanced manufacturing and mobility (AM&M) strategy

    With fundamental shifts in the advanced manufacturing landscape, companies need to develop innovative business models to keep up with the changing demands and ongoing disruption. Digitization is forcing manufacturers to reinvent their supply chains to fully realize the benefits of a connected ecosystem and improve operational efficiency. EY-Parthenon teams can help companies operating in the AM&M space develop digital-first strategies that fast-track productivity, improve portfolios and set a clear road map for smarter manufacturing.

  • Consumer strategy

    Disruptive technologies, new business models and agile market entrants are revolutionizing the way people shop, what they buy and how they live. In this complex and ever-evolving environment, consumer companies must shift their focus from protecting what they have to creating what they need to become. Consumer companies must rethink how and where to serve the smart consumer. They must build the capabilities to put data at the heart of the organization and create the agility to respond to market change. Their supply chain must evolve into a transparent demand-response network. EY-Parthenon professionals help CPR companies explore, identify and implement the right balance of bold strategic choices that will sustain their business today and transform it for relevance tomorrow.

  • Education strategy

    Education is vital for the future, yet complex in the present. However, the objective remains constant: achieving better student outcomes. EY-Parthenon professionals, in combination with the broader EY organization, have served as advisors to the education sector across the globe for more than 20 years. By working across the public and private sector, EY-Parthenon teams are well positioned to observe both the supply and demand sides of education, and to monitor the industry trends as they play out on a local and global level. They offer clients a suite of capabilities, from strategy through implementation support, across several subsectors, including K-12 systems and schools, higher education and workforce development, governments and foundations, education service providers and education transactions. Learn more.

  • Energy strategy

    Decarbonization, digitization, cost pressures and geopolitical uncertainty are just some of the forces transforming the energy and resources industry. With all the disruption sweeping across the sector, there are countless new opportunities. EY-Parthenon professionals can help energy and resource companies develop a future-led strategy that can be implemented across the whole enterprise to help maximize the opportunities ahead.

  • Financial services strategy

    Amid sweeping regulatory change, today’s financial services institutions are focusing on digital transformation, convergence and disruption from an array of non-traditional competitors — all while meeting greater demands for trust and transparency. EY-Parthenon strategists bring data-driven analysis and subsector knowledge across banking and capital markets, insurance, and wealth and asset management to help clients develop and deliver sustainable, long-term value.

  • Government and real estate strategy

    In today’s world, people are communicating, organizing and demanding change faster than ever before. From the way people work to the services they use and the places in which they live, digital technologies are creating new patterns of citizen behavior. This brings new challenges and demands for all organizations, including government. EY-Parthenon professionals can help governments adopt digital technologies to create new ways of working, with the aim of achieving better outcomes for themselves and their citizens.

  • Health sciences and wellness strategy

    Aging populations and chronic disease are putting pressure on health resources around the world. At the same time, scientific progress, augmented intelligence and digital data are transforming the traditional health care models. This is causing a power shift, with new entrants disrupting the incumbents. Staying competitive and providing the personalized experience that patients demand require that life sciences and health care organizations find new ways of working. EY-Parthenon professionals can help these organizations design and deliver strategies that work for all stakeholders while anticipating trends and regulatory changes to help ensure sustainability in this increasingly evidence-based, outcomes-focused sector.

  • Private equity (PE) strategy

    PE firms, portfolio companies and investment funds face complex challenges. They are under pressure to deploy capital amid unprecedented economic and geopolitical uncertainty, increased competition and rising stakeholder expectations. Successful deals depend on the ability to move faster, drive rapid and strategic growth, and create greater value throughout the transaction life cycle. EY-Parthenon professionals help PE firms drive meaningful impact across the breadth of their funds and portfolios by helping create long-term value in an actionable, sustainable and transparent manner for all stakeholders.  

  • Technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) strategy

    Industry convergence offers TMT organizations the chance to evolve and transform, but it also presents challenges around competitiveness and the delivery of agile corporate strategies for growth. Content distributors are transforming into content producers, service providers are becoming tech companies, technology companies are the catalyst for dramatic change in every sector, and customers want the latest innovations now. EY-Parthenon professionals help TMT clients define their true market context and competitive landscape, develop strategies that systematically help create long-term value and then help deliver the strategies, helping transform TMT companies into powerhouses that will lead the technology revolution of the future.

This is how EY-Parthenon — through the combination of deep sector knowledge and experience of providing and executing corporate, transaction and turnaround strategies — can help clients reinvent the now, reshape the next and reimagine the beyond.
