Real-World Strategy

EY-Parthenon designs and delivers strategies for businesses that are both aspirational and implementable. Planning and presentations will go nowhere if they are not anchored in the realities of your business. By connecting teams and technologies from within EY-Parthenon and the broader EY ecosystem, we can provide our clients with corporate, transaction and turnaround strategies that are actionable, impactful and deliver results. That’s Real-World Strategy.

How EY-Parthenon can help

We bring experience, scale and results to each of our clients, which allows us to help them design and deliver transformative strategies that build sustainable value. By combining the aspirational with the operational, the creative with the practical — we can help clients reinvent the now, reshape the next and reimagine beyond.

Corporate and growth strategy

We advise clients on developing corporate growth strategies by providing in-depth market, competitor and customer insights. We then help them implement their strategic plans by leveraging financial and operational perspectives from across their organization.

Transaction strategy

We help our clients realize their full potential through fast-tracked, better-informed decisions across the whole deal life cycle. We guide clients from M&A or divestment strategy, through the planning, diligence, and integration or separation phases of a transaction to build long-term value.

Turnaround strategy

Whether a business is in crisis, restructuring or facing a financial or operational challenge, we work with stakeholders to rapidly provide deep strategic, financial, operational, tax, turnaround and restructuring advice to help solve business issues in critical and complex situations.
