Building Successful Post-Merger Integration & Transformation With Agility
A key growth strategy of many businesses is Mergers and Acquisitions. Yet, despite the promise and extensive due diligence invested to ensure business, cost and revenue synergies, many M&As still fall short of creating the expected shareholder value. Why do so many deals produce such disappointing results?
One of the key reasons is post-merger integration activities are often treated as transactional events after the deal is completed. In reality, the decisions made before the deal is closed are equally important.
In addition, post-merger integration & transformation are not straitjacket. Leveraging past experiences of integration & transformation is as much a risk as it is a benefit. Hence, post-merger integration & transformation need to take into account the focus and unique organisation characteristics. As an example, a post-merger integration driven by cost optimisation will take on a very different strategy and approach compared to one that is motivated by increasing the top-line. This is on top of organisational nuances that we need to be sensitive so that the integration and transformation can be delivered at a pace, style, and focus that suits the organisation and their people.
