Integration Strategy & Execution

Transactions from concept to execution

When the gate opens in a horse race, it’s too late to second-guess your approach. The same is true for the training and other preparations that must be put into action and relentlessly carried through to the finish line, with adjustments made along the way. That ruthless focus and discipline are also required for effective mergers and acquisitions (M&A). The preparations made prior to closing the deal (Day One) were just the beginning. Execution—fulfilling strategic expectations for the deal—is where the race is won or lost in terms of shareholder value.

Moment of truth

Deloitte’s Integration Strategy and Execution practice can help clients through critical steps that bring a transaction from concept through execution. We look past process to the final impact each decision is likely to have. Our approach helps companies develop the structure and discipline to effectively identify, execute, and integrate their deals.

We work closely with our M&A colleagues to position the critical aspects of people, process, and technology to be addressed at each stage of the M&A life cycle. We also leverage the audit, financial advisory, risk management, and tax services of Deloitte’s network of practitioners to bring specialized resources to our M&A engagements.
