Day 1 and 100 Planning

The first 100 days are very critical: a strong control over management of the process and over overall communication is required.

Client challenges

  • Merging companies have the majority of their customer issues in the first 100 days
  • Stockholders are expecting to see a clear increase in the profit soon after the investment
  • Cultural and “political” issues to be managed

How we can help

  • Identify clearly all the stakeholders
  • Manage the communication towards the stakeholders in order to manage the expectations
  • Reduce the risk of failure
  • Make the relevant managers come on board of the project

Key benefits

  • Commitment of the board
  • Commitment of the managers
  • Clients’ expectations managed
  • Reduced impact on Business as Usual impact

Lessons learnt

  • 50% of companies merged experience losses in productivity in the first 8 months
  • Clients are expecting new services, lower prices, better services etc. if they do not get them in the first months they move to a competitor
  • If investors do not see a clear ROI, they move the money away to another deal
