ENGAGEMENT SNAPSHOT

  • THE ACQUISITION of Impact Innovations was the largest and most complex deal Design Group had ever attempted. Integration planning & execution expertise was needed to ensure the transaction delivered on the integration goals and avoided business disruption.

  • THE INTEGRATION was carefully orchestrated around key system implementations and a manufacturing facility closure. To complicate matters further, work was to be completed by specific dates to avoid disrupting the production cycle of their retail calendar.

Industry: Consumer products
Employees impacted: 600
Locations integrated: 5 (across the US, UK & South Asia)
Team size 4 FTEs
Engagement length 5 months

  • An IMO (Integration Management Office) covering 10 functional workstreams and nearly 30 people
