Industry strategy

EY-Parthenon industry strategy professionals help organizations consider a broader set of stakeholders when defining their purpose, setting their strategy, transforming their business, and measuring and reporting the value they create.

What EY-Parthenon industry strategy teams can do for you

CEOs are no longer just running companies; they are also managing complex ecosystems. Today more than ever, they need strategies that work to maximize the opportunities ahead. They need to rapidly reset their strategies to compete in the real world — and they need to be able to implement them in double time.

EY-Parthenon professionals help CEOs reimagine their ecosystems, reshape their portfolios and reinvent themselves for a better future.

While EY-Parthenon professionals have a breadth of perspectives and experience, we also have a common skill set that allows us to focus on achieving sustainable growth for clients — from the front-end strategic conversations, we collaborate with CEOs and business leaders through the longer-term implementation process. Whether it’s digital transformation, industry convergence and dislocation, or financial and operational complexities, EY-Parthenon teams bring data analytics, leading technology and digital capabilities to a client’s toughest strategic issues. In doing so, we can move quickly from idea to implementation to help clients execute with speed and certainty.

The EY-Parthenon industry 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 industry professionals can share rich and differentiated market insights, since they have both the detailed industry knowledge of today and the big-picture opportunities of industry convergence tomorrow.

Learn more about EY-Parthenon’s nine industry 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. Learn more.

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. Learn more.

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 industry across the globe for more than 20 years. By working across the public and private industry, 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 sub industries, 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 industry, 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 maximize the opportunities ahead. Learn more.

Financial services strategy

Amid sweeping regulatory changes, 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 subindustry knowledge across banking and capital markets, insurance, and wealth and asset management teams to help clients develop and deliver sustainable, long-term value. Learn more.

Government and public sector 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. Learn more.

Health sciences and wellness strategy

Aging populations and chronic diseases 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, outcome-focused industry. Learn more.

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 can 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. Learn more.

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 industry, and customers want the latest innovations now. EY-Parthenon professionals can help TMT clients define their true market context and competitive landscape, develop strategies that systematically 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. Learn more.

This is how EY-Parthenon — through the combination of deep industry 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.
