The integration planning and execution phases of any merger are critical. This is where growth opportunities are uncovered and cost savings are delivered on. Yet the post-merger integration process is fraught with potential pitfalls that can derail progress. That’s where we come in.
We know that successful post-merger integration (PMI) takes a deep understanding of the merger thesis. That’s why we bring a multidisciplinary team with deep industry experience, technology expertise, and operational know-how to the table. We approach integration consulting holistically, rather than as a series of projects, so that we can help you from strategy, analysis, and planning, through every complexity, all the way to delivering a successful post-merger integration. We’ll be with you in the trenches making sure that you have all the tools and knowledge you need to succeed.
That’s how our post-merger integration (PMI) services deliver undeniable results—deals that strengthen companies and create value, faster.

The key to a successful merger is to begin preparing as soon as you know the deal is likely to close. We help you identify, budget, and plan mission-critical operational improvement and technology initiatives that support your investment thesis and can improve EBITDA performance. We’ll also identify the right structure and leadership to oversee the merger implementation process.
Establish the essential integration reference guide for everyone involved in the strategy, planning, and execution of your post-merger integration. We’ve developed M&A integration playbooks for mergers of all sizes and in most industries, so we can quickly tailor yours for your unique circumstances and goals.
Define the optimal structure, operating norms, optimized business processes, technology, vendors, metrics, and post-merger culture for the combined organization. Our library of industry-specific target operating models accelerates the process of determining how two organizations will come together to create new value.
Design leadership, reporting structures, sizing, spans of control, and workforce optimization strategies that are aligned to your post-merger business strategy and operating model. Our human capital management experts have extensive merger and acquisition experience and can assist with company integration best practices in areas such as pay equity, talent retention strategy, or organization design.
Chart your course to success and value creation. Our established and proven post-merger integration planning tools and templates expedite the process for building pre-close, Day 1, and post-Day 1 integration. Work from merger integration plans that cover all the bases.
Establish and run an effective IMO, with the right structure, roles and responsibilities, program management processes, and tools for tracking progress, risks, and synergies. Our digital IMO tools and dashboards minimize administrative workload during execution, so you can achieve post-merger success with leaner teams.
Identifying the right leaders—and the right numbers of leaders—is critical to a profitable and productive operating model following a merger. Our comprehensive and proactive organizational change management communication plan aligns leaders and brings together cultures and operating norms while avoiding common M&A integration barriers and pitfalls. So you can integrate teams, and smoothly navigate complex change.
Accelerate the path to unified operations with an efficient approach to consolidating and integrating core systems. Technology is in our DNA: We know how to apply it to enable a winning business. We can help you use modern cloud infrastructure, digital/ data platforms, and other capabilities to build an agile, scalable organization.
