19 Apr Digital Workflow and Project Management Solutions for M&A
Trying to figure out how to grow your business in a strategic way? In the last year, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) have triggered significant growth for forward thinking companies, resulting in both organizational revolutions and technological transformations.
The ability of corporations to be agile and adapt while seizing new opportunities has generated new revenue streams and secured their places in the market. If you are part of the core corporate strategy team for your business, you almost certainly began by assessing if a company transition opportunity existed. What did you focus on next in your process? Did you consider the following stages?
Review Corporate ESG Positioning
The process of considering a partnership often begins with examining your company’s vision and goal statements and ensuring that synergies are maximized. Corporations are also keyed into taking advantage of the opportunity to do an ESG analysis during this process to gain a better understanding of the overall operational environment. Environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) is a framework for assessing trends and the extent to which a business works for societal purposes that go beyond the core duty of profit maximization for its shareholders.
Project Plan and Dashboards
Each stage of the merger and acquisition integration process should be accompanied by a thorough action plan with defined completion dates. Sirius Solutions has established a “Best in Class” execution approach for recent transaction engagements, recording transactions end-to-end and providing project visibility across all corporate areas via Microsoft Teams integration with project dashboards.
Dashboards for M&A execution plans display the status, priority, and progress of all workstreams and activities in real time. All business readiness functions are aware of dependent items required by other deal team groups and functions. This technology is particularly beneficial now that teams are collaborating digitally in a post-pandemic world.
Data Request Tracker
Throughout the transaction’s lifecycle, Sirius Solutions records all information requests in a standardized and consolidated way, ensuring complete transparency of all necessary data required to finish and transfer the project. Not only can discussions associated with requests give context and clarity for the requestor, but also for other linked parties or functions.
Day 1 Readiness Plan: Workstreams, Tasks, and Checklists
Day 1 Readiness requires progress tracking across multiple project workstreams, tasks and checklists involving multiple disciplines and subject matter experts. With alerts, assignments and accountability, key project deadlines are more likely to be completed on time with added visibility, while also lowering transaction costs.
