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.

Insights on the latest disruptive technologies

When the ground beneath your feet is shifting, do you stand still or leap forward?

What is intelligence without trust?

AI can be a great tool to augment humans, but we must understand its limitations. The best answer from AI may still not be appropriate based on cultural and corporate values. EY’s Nigel Duffy and Cathy Cobey explore five key areas that can help business leaders build trust, even as AI continues to transform businesses.

Learn how

Industrializing the blockchain for automotive

Blockchains will do for networks of enterprises and business ecosystems what enterprise resource planning (ERP) did for the single company. EY’s Paul Brody and Philipp Schartau explore how blockchain is disrupting the automotive industry, from driving greater efficiency and collaboration to addressing issues such as autonomy and shared usage.

Making the future of work, work

Technology is changing how people work. It is redefining roles and creating new jobs. EY’s Chris Mazzei and Michael Bertolino discuss how the workplace is changing and what employers should do to lead their people through this continual change.

Learn how

Putting artificial intelligence (AI) to work

The biggest risk related to artificial intelligence is non-adoption. EY's Chris Mazzei and Nigel Duffy discuss why organizations can't wait to start thinking about AI.
