The New Era of Innovative Disruption in Aerospace and Defense

Why do so many aerospace and defense (A&D) companies “stay the course”?

Why do so many aerospace and defense (A&D) companies “stay the course” when faced with disruption, sticking with strategies and business models designed for a different era? New Deloitte research found that A&D companies that adapted their strategies and business models significantly outperformed those that didn’t.

 Shifts in demand trigger new eras

Why should A&D company executives who have traditionally “stayed the course” consider changing strategies and business models now? Because today’s convergence of disruptive factors will fundamentally change the way the A&D industry is structured, operates, and performs. Sticking with the status quo—or just making small adjustments—won’t be enough to maintain market leadership in the next era of A&D.

To outperform the industry, A&D company executives should take bold steps. In our experience, many companies hesitate to launch new strategies because they lack a systematic set of defined alternatives. This report outlines alternatives to consider, ranging from the most passive (e.g., stay the course) to the more active (e.g., restructure portfolio). Our findings suggest that companies choose a strategy that actively creates value.

Business Strategy in Aerospace and Defense

Time to outperform the industry

The bottom line is that the inevitable march of commoditization has finally arrived on portions of the A&D market’s doorstep. It’s changing the fundamental basis of competition in the industry and shaking the foundation on which many companies have based their strategies. Staying the course isn’t an option.

Companies that embrace the fundamental disruption in the market have an opportunity to gain market leadership. By rethinking their strategies and business models, they can improve financial performance and outperform the A&D industry over the next decade.
