We work with clients on some of the largest deals, but we also know that not all clients want or need full-time dedicated programme support. DD Consulting offers flexible integration or separation support, where one or two Partners or Associates work with you on a part-time or ad hoc basis to prepare for, and manage, your programme. This may be useful for organisations that have smaller deals, less integration work to do, in-house resources that just require some additional M&A expertise or those programmes that are cost-constrained.
Typically our consultant would work with you to plan the overall integration, provide training to key staff on the M&A process and important tools and templates that will help them. Then, we often facilitate the programme kick-off and stay involved on a part-time basis, for example at Steering Committee meetings, work stream updates, etc. The Integration Lead may like to have regular or ad hoc meetings with us throughout as well.
By staying close enough to the programme to monitor it, we can improve the efficiency of the integration and mitigate risks by using our experience to see them coming. If at any point you feel that you need more support from us then we can always do so.
