All due diligence for acquisitions suffer from the same blind spot
What You See...
What We See...
We see behind the masks and can therefore tell you the true organisational capability, the challenge you would have in unlocking the value and therefore help you confirm the true value of the acquisition.
What you don’t see is the blind spot – what the employees really think and feel about the changes needed to deliver the objectives of the acquisition.
What We Do
We get behind these masks, behind the ‘natural defences’ of people
to identify what they really think and feel about the changes required to unlock the value post the acquisition.
As a result we can tell you the ‘critical people issues’ that would need to be fixed, and the investment required to fix them, if you are to make the changes that will unlock that value, sustain the changes and therefore justify the price you pay.
We Look At
Context - We look at the value you want to unlock. This is about your context and not external best practice.
Every Room in the House - We look everywhere that could be the cause of a critical people issue that could prevent the required changes.
Behind the Masks - We have safe conversations about what your people really think and feel.
Our Process is designed to be non-disruptive. One to One engaging conversations with our industry experienced consultants.
What You Will Get
A simple executive summary outlining how you want to unlock value and the critical people issues that would prevent that value from being realised.
A comprehensive report on what’s actually happening with people in the business including how effective the critical people practices are and the strength of the underlying culture.
A simple and practical ‘Action/People investment plan’ that would be required to deliver the changes necessary to justify the price you expect to pay or a recommendation not to buy at that price.
