“The biggest problem that companies have gotten themselves into is where they have over-committed and under delivered. You should always under commit and over deliver.”

The key components of a divestiture

On this episode of M&A Science, we're recapping one of the sessions from our M&A Science Virtual Summit. We had four guest speakers who talked about lessons learned from large scale divestitures: 

  1. Galina Wolinetz - Managing Director at Virtas Partners M&A Integration, Separations
  2. Joshua Beggs - Field CTO at Dell Technologies
  3. Jillian Kaebel-Sisk, Global HR M&A Mgr in Corporate Strategy and Business Development at Caterpillar Inc.
  4. Nitin Kumar - CEO of Appnomic

Together they discuss key components of large scale divestitures both from HR's perspective as well as from the tech department's perspective. In this podcast you will learn about how to spot red flags during a divestiture, how communication can affect the outcome of a divestiture, and what the divestiture process looks like from both HR's perspective and from a technology stand point. They also discuss the importance of the separation management office and the key role they play in executing a divestiture, as well as the similarities it has with an IMO.
