Business Strategy and Operations
Executives frequently face problems requiring technical skills that are not available within their organization. Or, in many cases, an outside analysis is needed to provide an objective assessment of a strategy or problem. This is especially true for companies facing turbulent competitive environments or unusual strategic problems.
EI combines institutional knowledge of industries with strong modeling and statistical capabilities to offer research services for strategic planning, marketing, and other corporate functions.
EI’s expertise is in those areas of management consulting in which mastery of the principles of microeconomics, competition and the functioning of markets is essential. These areas include strategic planning, competitor analysis, global strategy, and corporate strategy. EI consultants have:
