EVOLUTION: We bring business transformation leadership to Mergers and Acquisitions

Beat the 70-90% M&A Failure Rate


The world of M&A has continued to explode as a critical strategy to growth.  Despite trillions of dollars in investment deals annually, and billions in consulting spend, the rate of success is still at unacceptable levels.  Some of the top contributors to these breakdowns include on or more of these reasons:

  • Inadequate due diligence
  • Fragmented leadership and ownership
  • A false sense of security
  • Limited understanding of cultural differences
  • Misunderstanding of value
  • Incomplete approach to integration
  • Maturity of M&A capabilities and scalability


Businesses need a new framework (involving playbooks, processes, people, information, and technology) to effectively define value and proactively manage the complexities and risks before Day One – so they can plan a successful path to integration.
