Aerospace, defense and government services firms are facing several industry changes. Aerospace companies are experiencing a rebound in demand from emerging markets and the replacement of developed market aircraft fleets. Meanwhile, defense firms face a declining budget environment in several countries and shifts in how and what governments are purchasing. ExpertActions has helped clients engaged in more than 100 different subsectors of the aerospace, defense and space markets to address pressing industry challenges and implement pragmatic solutions to fuel growth.

  • It's time for tough choices: It's time for governments to make tough decisions about where to cut the budget.
  • The focused company: Unnecessary complexity cripples companies. But some have learned to root it out wherever it crops up.
  • Rethink familiar business models: A new strategy for defense companies seeking to create shareholder value: business model innovation.
