Traditional product value chains used to be linear. Now they are fast-moving product development value networks, encompassing an extended ecosystem of partners, suppliers, manufacturers and customers—all influencing the product lifecycle.We believe that product innovation and product lifecycle management (PLM) is at a point of inflection and discontinuity. Digital enablers and new technology paradigms have become part of the product development and lifecycle management process, utilizing big product data and digital infrastructures. As customers use digital to change the way they interact with products, companies are looking for ways to use digital to develop them. Ellison Strategy helps companies to seize the digital opportunity from our vantage point at the intersection of business and technology strategy. We define long-term strategies that leverage digital enablers. We align these strategies with corporate vision and goals, and then support with integrated solutions. With more than 25 years of experience working across geographies and industries, we have helped leading companies to improve their product lifecycle management performance, increase R&D efficiency and boost ROI from their R&D investments.
Strategy’s Innovation and Product Development services cover the end-to-end spectrum of the product and service lifecycle - from ideation to retirement, unlocking engineering productivity and driving value across production, the supply chain and after sales services.
1. We understand the business dimension of Innovation and Product Development. With the digitization of businesses and processes the challenge is less about the “what” but more about the “how” in the execution of innovation and product development with the same rigor and discipline applied in other critical business processes.
2. We take a holistic, transformational perspective on Innovation and Product Development and PLM. Strategy Strategy’s approach to product innovation and PLM transformation is an outcome-driven business discipline that harmonizes people, process, data and systems based on proven methodologies and experiences in program management, value capturing, change management and industrialized delivery. As a result, our clients achieve high performance in growth and innovation that is right, fast, efficient and repeatable.
3. We understand the impact of digital and technology on Innovation and Product Development. Our strength is at the intersection of strategy and technology. Ellison Strategy has unparalleled breadth and depth of digital and technology expertise to boost R&D performance, because we are able to architect and transform organizations to embrace the digital advantages in PLM: product development collaboration with the extended enterprise; instant, multi-form, connected customer experience; data driven insights and decisions; and borderless infrastructure for nimble product development.
Ellison has one of the world’s largest PLM practices. With a global team of more than 4,000 professionals delivering PLM strategies, processes and solutions, we are combining industry specific knowledge with deep functional know-how. To further strengthen our capabilities, we strategically acquired three companies specializing in PLM: PRION Group, PCO Innovation and the industrial and embedded software business from evopro.
Our Innovation and Product Development group focuses on providing strategy consulting services that build the foundation for business transformations initiatives, large-scale systems integration projects and engineering outsourcing programs.
