AERS Advisory’s DTank Innovation Challenge
Setting the standard for out-of-the-box thinking
Audit & Enterprise Risk Services (AERS) Advisory is focused on developing new, innovative ideas and services to help clients solve their most complex risk challenges and grow the business. This commitment and investment has helped the practice bring a range of innovation portfolio offerings to market as well as become the premier provider of risk advisory services and a significant growth engine for Deloitte.
“AERS Advisory is the leading strategic risk advisory firm in the market, but for us to maintain that position, we have to continue to develop and deliver innovative solutions for our clients,” said Owen Ryan, AERS Advisory CEO, Deloitte & Touche LLP.
“We have worked extremely hard to embed innovation into our culture as well as encourage and reward breakthrough thinking. Most recently, we created the DTank Innovation Challenge to give all of our professionals an opportunity to help shape the future of our practice.”
The DTank Innovation Challenge introduced a competitive element to the practice’s idea-gathering efforts and demonstrated how AERS Advisory is paving the way for future growth through an unwavering commitment to innovation, client service, and fostering an environment where leaders thrive. Professionals were encouraged to identify breakthrough, go-to-market ideas that will deliver increased value to clients and drive the growth and strategic positioning of the practice.
More than 600 professionals participated in AERS Advisory’s DTank Innovation Challenge, submitting nearly 350 ideas for new, market-facing services. These ideas were scrutinized and whittled down to six finalists. The respective teams then gathered in Detroit to pitch their ideas to the AERS Advisory “Sharks” and compete for investment funding to further develop these ideas. Finalists also had the chance to win exciting prizes — including meeting with U.S. CEO Joe Echevarria and the AERS Advisory Executive Committee, as well as financial awards.
