Study after study confirms that more transactions fail due to poor implementation rather than a flawed strategy and that failure is most often a result of not executing the strategy in a structured and timely fashion.
Our experience of working on deals of all shapes and sizes tells us that there are three key aspects to keeping a balance between the integration and the core business.
We take an active, hands-on approach to helping clients focus on the right things at the right time. Our disciplined approach helps our clients stabilise the combining business, achieve early wins, build momentum, and instil confidence among their stakeholders.
To put it simply, we help clients by:
A strategic and tailored approach to integration will ensure that your deal delivers its full potential. By setting clearly defined objectives and targets that focus explicitly on value delivery, we maximise the value of your deal while reducing the risks involved in the post deal phase.
We support our clients by providing an independent view on their post merger integration processes, and where these may not have gone to plan, why that is and how to get back on track.
Our integration health check provides an “As-is” assessment of the current state of an integration programme against the client’s original investment plan, best practice & our experience.
It provides clients with an objective & independent view on the status, strengths, improvement opportunities and key risks/issues of their integration process.
We typically perform these as a retrospective assessment, 6-18 months after the date that clients take ownership of a business.
