- Integration of business innovation with strategy offerings sees EY advance to leader ranking
EY has been recognized by ALM Intelligence (ALM) as a market leader for Business Strategy & Planning Consulting in its new report, The ALM Vanguard: Business Strategy & Planning Consulting 2019, part of ALM’s Buyer Ratings Guide for professional consultancy services.
According to ALM, EY continues the upward trajectory it displayed last year – when it entered the leader board for the first time – by integrating innovation and strategy offerings.
Reto Isenegger, EY Global Advisory Strategy Services Leader, says:
“Digitization, emerging technologies and other disruptive megatrends continue to challenge traditional business models and redefine industries, sectors and functions at an unprecedented pace and scale. Together with EY think tank, EYQ, EY teams are helping leaders anticipate the forces shaping the future and navigate through the transformative age. They can help companies solve their most complex issues with solutions and services that leverage EY services, technology and global implementation experience.”
The report also noted that providers identified as best in class—including EY—evidence deep capabilities in specific areas of Business Strategy & Planning consulting and stand out from their peers for their highly effective and often innovative consulting approaches and services. According to the report, among these providers, EY bridges the gap in client strategy operating systems by harnessing their data assets and transforming them into actionable insights.
Nathan Simon, Senior Director, Management Consulting Research, ALM Intelligence, says:
“A newcomer to the leader board, EY embraces the need to marry near-term and long-term, planning anchored in a well-articulated purpose and distinctive point of view on how to judge the drivers of long-term value. EY leans heavily on asset-based delivery to accelerate engagements and facilitate the linkage of strategy to broader operating model and infrastructure initiatives.”
