Consumer Products

Today’s consumer products companies face an unprecedented set of challenges: volatile commodity prices, increasing global competition, slowing-emerging markets growth, stagnant developed-markets growth, cost-conscious and increasingly fragmented consumer segments, and demand for higher-quality products. Navigating those dangerous waters can be extraordinarily difficult for even the most talented management teams.

Financial Services

The financial services sector is facing significant challenges. Competitive intensity is increasing, capital markets are becoming more volatile and overall profitability is shrinking. Added to this, governments are intervening to ensure the ongoing stability of the financial system. New regulatory requirements have emerged – Basel III and Solvency II, in particular. Customers are also increasingly sensitive to price and cost, while at the same time demanding higher quality and better service. To face these challenges, financial services companies need to review their strategies and business models.

Industrial production

Since the global financial crisis began, manufacturers in automotive, consumer products and engineering have been operating in an uncertain environment. To stay ahead of the market, close the gap on competitors or improve profitability for the long term, manufacturers must challenge their thinking to manage uncertainty and optimise performance. Battening down the hatches and waiting for business-as-usual to resume is a formula for failure.

IT & Technology

Even the historically buoyant and growing global IT industry suffered during the recent economic decline, and the IT firms that generate nearly half of industry revenue now face significant financial performance challenges and at least some risk of financial distress.

Softer demand, strong global competition, ever-shorter product life cycles, declining prices, complex sourcing (near shore/off-shore), and, as a result of all of those, reduced profitability are the realities that several IT firms face worldwide. That’s why many IT firms have turned their attention to improving operational efficiency, reducing costs, and reevaluating their prospects for growth within a rapidly changing environment.

Media

What does Web 2.0 mean for content production? When will mobile media become ready for the mass market? What will shape the media business in the next 5 to 10 years? Media and entertainment have never been so dynamic: With the advent of the Internet and mobile media, the industry has experienced dramatic upheaval over the last decade. We have seen the rise of new business models and innovations, such as IP and mobile TV, online communities, portals and free newspapers. These changes are reshaping the entertainment value chain. We are also observing dramatic shifts in consumer behavior, such as an increasing demand for customization and customer empowerment. The need for innovative business models is growing, and only those who understand how to create premium content and present unique, individualized products to both consumers and advertising clients will be able to stay in the game.

Pharma & Medtech

Today the life sciences industry faces ongoing and complex challenges—as well as opportunities for growth. Pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotech companies both small and large are seeking to capitalize on business-issue opportunities such as global expansion, a changing healthcare model, personalized medicine, biologics, and brand/generic convergence.

  • In large pharmaceutical companies, revenues are at risk due to patent expirations; research and development productivity is down; and the potential for new blockbusters is becoming increasingly scarce.
  • Biopharmaceutical products seem ready to assume center stage, but the sector’s ability to yield blockbusters remains unproven, and manufacturing and distribution complexities complicate the profit picture.
  • Pharmaceutical and medical device hybrids show great potential, but market entry is costly and risky; reimbursement regimes vary; and safety issues cloud the horizon.
  • Following a period of industry regulators’ wider use of corporate integrity agreements, companies are faced with having to determine the right level of compliance.
  • Companies are beset with a myriad of regulatory challenges related to issues of possible corruption and that bring to bear the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act, as well as matters of antitrust, global trade, and intellectual property.
  • Litigation remains a threat in the form of potential actions stemming from concerns with regard to the False Claims Act, the Hatch-Waxman Act, breaches of contract, intellectual property, and antitrust.

Public

Governments should support economic growth and better outcomes for citizens. But expectations of governments are changing. Many face tough fiscal challenges too. How can they adapt? With the right structures, people, systems, and culture, governments can be more effective, more efficient and even exceed expectations.

Transport

Across the transport sector, organisations are facing changing patterns of demand for their services, pressure to reduce operating costs and uncertainty over future investment. Increasingly, they must also provide environmentally sustainable solutions which reflect growing consumer demand for personalisation.

Wholesale

Change in the wholesale landscape is nothing new—wholesalers worldwide have always had to adapt to shifts in customer behavior and competitive threats. What is new is the frequency and scope of change, and how fundamentally these shifts can disrupt established retailers. Regardless of region, wholesalers who no longer offer a strong value proposition for their customers will lose. Yet wholesalers that pursue new opportunities and capitalize on these shifts can win and position themselves to grow.
