Consulting

The nature of work is evolving fast, new generations are now dominating the workforce and we’re all being asked to adopt new behaviors — to be more innovative, more agile, more collaborative, more everything. We believe better questions come from better connections. This means embracing a diversity of ideas and a rich mix of talents, backgrounds, and experience. These combined perspectives provided by our Consulting team will give you new insights, help you realize your organization’s purpose, and equip you to operate in an entirely new way.

Take a look at some of the services the Consulting team provides:

Emerging Technologies

The advent of emerging tech is recasting all industries and requires leaders to embrace new capabilities to turn new tech into new competitive advantage.

As stand-alone solutions, many emerging technologies are quite compelling, and adoption rates are accelerating in areas such as robotic process automation and the internet of things. Others, like additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence and blockchain, are still being explored for their potential to deliver business value at scale.

As it transforms, your organization can unlock real value through the combination of emerging technologies to provide business impact through convergence. You need to build out capabilities and skills to provide “venture-as-a-service,” and develop agile and dynamic ecosystems to help with the development and implementation of new solutions and business models.

Cybersecurity

How can organizations remain cyber resilient in the face of COVID-19?

Organizations must increasingly rely on new and disruptive technologies to help them grow and differentiate themselves in the evolving marketplace. Organizations that lack effective security measures to help manage these changes, face breaking the trust of their customers, stakeholders, and the marketplace while exposing themselves to ever increasing risk.

It’s time for a new take on protecting the organization: ensuring day-to-day resilience as well as a proactive, pragmatic, and strategic approach that considers risk and security from the onset. This is Security by Design.

Rather than avoiding risk altogether, Security by Design is about enabling trust in systems, designs and data so that organizations can take on more risk, lead transformational change and innovate with confidence.

Customers

In today’s world of empowered customers, competitive advantage comes through building trust. 

Everywhere you look, technology is transforming customer experiences and expectations, and it’s happening faster all the time. In this fast-paced environment, you need to put customer trust at the center of the entire organization, enabling you to create customer relationships that lead to unwavering loyalty and sustainable profits.

 

AYS Advisory helps companies transition to customer-centric business models and become trusted organizations to their customers. Our diverse teams of insights, experience, marketing, sales and service specialists, combined with our global connectivity and understanding of your industry issues, inspire us to ask better questions. We work with you to find innovative solutions that help create transparent and authentic customer experiences.

 
 

Performance Improvement

Performance Improvement can help your organization achieve its strategic goals — and then sustain that improvement in the long term. 

Performance improvement (PI) can help you solve the ever more complex challenges and issues that are prevalent as businesses seek to transform themselves in the digital age. We work with you to reimagine or transform your business purpose and model; create growth; manage cost and efficiency; respond to market pressures and regulation; and resolve operational challenges.

The scope of our PI capabilities encompasses innovation, strategy and purpose, through deep functional experience in technology, customer, finance, supply chain and operations, to providing support for your complex and large-scale program and portfolio management.

We also routinely combine our capabilities with those of our colleagues in risk, tax, transactions and assurance to design offerings that are unique in the market.

 

Risk

Discover how leading risk management practices create value and a competitive advantage by embracing disruption with trust and confidence. Successful organizations know that risk can come from every angle — upside, downside and outside — and can be hard to see, anticipate and respond to.

 

But they are embracing these risks, updating their risk functions and sharing risk intelligence to generate fresh value through aggressive innovation that gives them a competitive advantage.

The interplay between upside and downside risk is important to understand the long-term decisions being made to prevent risk and how that impacts an organization’s ability to meet its future business strategy and objectives. Learn how best-in-class risk management will create value through driving confidence in achieving strategic objectives and maintaining stakeholder trust.

Strategy

In today’s fast-paced world, C-suite and business leaders must truly be effective at driving value creation across their organization.

 

In today’s complex environment — with a preponderance of data, 24/7 news cycles, volatile geopolitical events and a fluctuating global economy – setting and executing a strategy to optimize the value of an organization has never been more challenging.

CEOs need to consider and take bold and transformative steps such as redefining their organization’s purpose, embarking on end-to-end digital transformations, pursuing and optimizing inorganic growth strategies, defining and implementing organic growth strategies, learning how to achieve disruptive innovations, understanding and acting upon changing customer and market dynamics, optimizing their supply chain and setting their global tax agenda.
