50% of mergers and acquisitions fail to create value and poorly planned post merger integration is blamed for half of those “failures”.
Integration, both in M&A and related to Joint Ventures, is made even more challenging where there is a cultural mismatch, lack of shared vision or a focus on cost savings alone. Edge Advisory can leverage our post merger integration experience to help.
Framework and Structure
Using knowledge gained on past merger integration engagements, Edge Advisory has developed a flexible framework which can be adapted to almost any situation.
We provide structures related to strategy creation, integration planning, work teams and work streams, governance and roadmap creation and tracking.
Teamwork and Cultural Understanding
Edge Advisory have worked extensively in China. Along with being able to provide actionable frameworks and structures, our success is due to our understanding of culture and the softer issues of merger integration and JV management.
We understand that integration requires communication and continual alignment on critical decisions which are required to move the business forward. Having lived and worked around the world, we can bridge cross cultural boundaries and build the strong team work required.
