“The transactional approach to M&A will not deliver transformational results. There has to be a mindset change.”
M&A as a means of transforming your business
On this episode of M&A Science, we are recapping a session from the M&A Science Virtual Summit held in June 2020. In this interview, Kison discusses post merger innovation. Joining him to talk about this topic is Toby Tester, Senior Consultant and Project Manager at BTD. Together they discuss how you can use M&A as a means of transforming your business, the traditional M&A approach versus an Agile approach, and the benefits of testing out the Agile approach.
Additionally, you will learn about the Holy Trinity of M&A success, the difference between game plans and plays, how to use a SWOT analysis as a play, and developing an operating model for plays. They close out the session with an interesting take on theatrical versus cultural approaches to M&A and give tips on how you can make your M&A process more innovative to drive better outcomes.
