How to Differentiate Between Busy Work and Value Creation in M&A Integrations

By GPMIP, Michael Holm and Thomas Kessler

At Global PMI Partners, we know that in some companies M&A executives take end-to-end responsibility for M&A from finding and signing deals to operational management of the acquired businesses. However, there can be a skill or continuity gap where deal team moves on to new deals and different operational leaders take over responsibility, executing existing day-to-day business while integrating the acquired business. Experienced acquisitive companies usually ensure executives from the deal team, including the deal champions, remain accountable longer term to ensure successful transition to operations and to tie deal drivers to integration priorities. But whoever delivers the integration, they face many challenges including assuring business continuity and avoiding a dip in revenues, developing a roadmap to deliver growth synergies, retaining key talent and delivering operational efficiencies and cost savings.

We invite you to join us for an executive training course on October 6th and 7th in London and November 22nd and 23rd in Stockholm.

Recognized experts on M&A integration will kick-off a new kind of intensive M&A integration training, focused on senior leaders that need to bridge the deal team / operational team chasm. The benefit of the such a bridge is focusing the leadership and employees on capturing the deal value as early as possible. The course is kept to a boardroom size for maximum engagement and combines sharing information and key concepts with group work through the use of case studies and a wealth of war stories from our experience, learning becomes intuitive and retention effortless. You will leave enriched with practical solutions to key M&A integration challenges that you can adopt and deploy in your organisations. Attend and invite others that can benefit!
