    Strategy and its execution are a challenge for every organization, especially now with the economic inflection point every company and consumer is facing.

    We recently worked on a project that required the integration of two $30M companies. Both had grown to this size in a short period of time and had systems that supported their individual sizes relatively well. When the two were combined, they pushed across an inflection point.

  • Post Merger Integration ( PMI ) Playbook

    blank

    It is reported that 70-90% of mergers & integrations don’t deliver the value that justified the acquisition.
