Ernst & Young LLP
How can you redesign your role in todays global economy?
Ernst & Young LLP,
already one of the "Big Six" accounting and management consulting
firms, had just completed four years of unprecedented growth. Based largely
on strong execution of technology-based strategies to help clients streamline
and reorganize, E&Y management consulting practices in the US blossomed.
The next step was to grow market share globally. Without further change in their
consulting competencies, E&Y risked losing market share to competitors better
at strategic management, bringing clients together in collaborative settings,
and catalyzing changes in methodology. Long-term growth depended on growing
these competencies internally to be able to deliver greater value to clients.
A series of DesignShop® activities followed by close
collaboration led to a working relationship with Ernst & Young to transform
the management consulting practice to meet these challenges. E&Y and MG
Taylor collaboratively designed, built, and staffed a center for providing design
services to Ernst & Young clients. Located in Chicago, the center is called
an Accelerated Solution Environment. MG Taylor worked closely with E&Y to
provide network support for the development of 21st century products and services
for their clients. In addition, MG Taylor provided on-going internal transformation
support for Ernst & Young at our knOwhere® Stores.
"In every instance we are getting done in three days what we would have
historically accomplished in somewhere between six weeks and three months."
