The First 100 Days

| Point of View

A structured and transparent approach to post-merger integration (PMI)

More than 70% of integ rations fail to deliver the expecte d results mainly due to the absence of a clear postmerger planning. The first 100 days of a merger have a disproportionately high impact on the overall succes s of an integration. The goal of the first 100 days is to ensure business continuity, confirm synergy targets and define the target operating model, while following a critical path to best mitigate integration risks. Thus, having a plan for the first 100 days in place decides over the succes s of a post-merger integration. For this critical phase, Capgemini Consulting has proven methodologies and capabilities to develop and execute the plan.
