Rapid Response to Shifting Industry Structure

Our client, a private equity firm, focuses on investments that create new businesses through fundamental changes to industry structure. Once a specific investment strategy is set, our client dedicates one of its partners full-time to the endeavor. Selecting the right industry segment and creating the right strategy are crucial to success.

A joint Analysis Group-client team focused on identifying a variety of areas in which such transformative investment approaches could be effective. The team used several of our proprietary frameworks to identify underlying trends and forces for potentially radical change in particular industry segments. Next, the team narrowed the field to five industries and, with the help of experts in each industry, validated potential high-value transformations.

In a short period of time, we compiled a representative list of 50 potential areas of interest, ultimately identifying nine high-potential new business areas across diverse industries. Our client elected to further develop six of these potential areas.
