Strategy& is the global strategy consulting business of professional services firm PwC. Formerly Booz & Company, the firm was acquired by PwC in the spring of 2014.
Strategy& is one of the industry's top strategy houses, helping clients solve their most challenging strategic issues. To help its clients compete, Strategy& places a heavy emphasis on foresight and innovative thinking-a trait that goes all the way back to founder Edwin Booz. While typically maintaining a high level of confidentiality around the companies it works for, the firm has an impressive list of accomplishments it has publicly acknowledged, including: the merger between the National and American Football Leagues in the 1960s; helping Chrysler with its historic turnaround in the 1970s; developing supply chain management theory; working with the German government to privatize Germany's telecom operations and establish Deutsche Telekom in the 1990s; developing the organizational DNA concept in the 2000s; and releasing the books Strategy That Works in 2016 and Fit for Growth in 2017 .
Spreading ideas and innovation
The firm continues to stress innovation and leading edge business ideas, regularly publishing reports, white papers, books, and the award-winning quarterly magazine, strategy+business. It also produces regular podcasts and videos to promote its leading research.
Strategy&'s consultants work with the world's leading public and private businesses, government ministries, and institutions, providing them with a broad spectrum of services including: growth strategy, portfolio strategy, mergers and acquisitions, organization design, marketing strategy, sales and channel management, operations strategy, and digital and information technology strategy. In addition, the firm's think tank, the Katzenbach Center, is a center for excellence in the areas of organizational culture and leadership, the informal organization, and motivation. And, in the Middle East, it has The Ideation Center, a think tank that aims to promote sustainable growth in the region by helping leaders across sectors translate socioeconomic trends into actions and better business decisions.
In terms of industry expertise, the firm has expert talent and resources across multiple areas including: aerospace and defense, automotive, chemicals, consumer products, energy and utilities, financial services, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, industrial products, media and entertainment, oil and gas, retail, transportation, and others.
