Competitive business today is all about making intelligent, informed decisions. As a Consultant within EY-‍Parthenon you will help make that happen. EY-
Parthenon is a leading advisory organization focused on strategy consulting. We are committed to combining our unconventional thinking with our clients’ smarts to deliver actionable strategies. The Software Strategy Group (SSG) is a specialized advisory software practice within EY-

Parthenon serving private equity investors and their portfolio companies from diligence through strategy and execution.
The opportunity
SSG provides investment and acquisition guidance (including commercial, product, and technology diligence), strategy/value creation and transaction advisory services to companies and investors in the software economy. EY-

Parthenon SSG teams have completed hundreds of successful projects and provide a unique capability to help companies make critical decisions and complete successful transactions.
SSG team members conduct primary and secondary research, synthesize and analyze data, build and test hypotheses, and deliver strategic advice to our clients to help them make informed decisions. We have developed the models, industry contacts, benchmarks and methods designed for the software economy. Additionally, SSG works with internal Executive Directors who have been CTOs and CEOs in early and late stage software companies. The combination of the Executive Director team, our Consultants and Vice Presidents with deep software expertise, provides a unique opportunity for you to learn from the best in the field.
You have the ability to develop your career through a broad scope of engagements, mentoring and formal learning. That’s how we develop outstanding leaders who team to deliver on our promises to all of our stakeholders, and in so doing, play a critical role in building a better working world for our people, for our clients and for our communities.
Your key responsibilities
Consultants are responsible for leading workstreams and engagements, translating client needs into project tasks and deliverables. Consultants manage day-to-day problem solving and team analytical activities, and serve as key liaisons among consulting team members, SSG VPs and Partners, and our clients.
Our Consultant lead teams through on a variety of client issues, ranging from diligence to strategy assignments:
Product and technology diligence
: the SSG provides market-leading product and technology diligence of companies in the Software Economy, an “inside-out” assessment of product capabilities, product road map, software architecture, technical debt, and the organization and processes associated with a software organization.
Integrated diligence
: when EY-Parthenon teams combine product and technology diligence with leading commercial due diligence “outside-in” capabilities, we provide clients with a cohesive view of their target investment from both a market and an operational perspective, providing insights that each diligence workstream may not uncover independently. We are a leader and innovator in this integrated offering and bring extensive capabilities to the marketplace.
Software development effectiveness
: EY-‍Parthenon teams assess a company’s software development organization for capacity, talent and process, and actionable recommendations to improve productivity, timeliness, predictability, quality and overall alignment with the corporate strategy. This assessment is conducted through site visits, interviews, data analysis, hands-on evaluation, primary research and benchmarking. EY-Parthenon provides a detailed strategy on how to improve internal and external integration, communication and governance.
Technology strategy and road map
: by analyzing clients’ technology road maps and potential alternatives, as well as assessing cost, risk and alignment with strategic objectives, we help companies identify and build a suitable technology strategy and architecture road map — sometimes building on internal efforts and sometimes on brand-new ideas. This type of engagement includes a potential re-platforming initiative or a major transformational effort, such as a substantial acquisition or a SaaS transformation.
Product strategy and road map
: EY-Parthenon teams analyze a company’s product road map and provide recommendations for improvement in product strategy and road map based on market and
