Every deal can pave the way to growth, but you cannot simply ‘buy’ your way to value.
The pressure to avoid failure, in deal making and execution, has never been so high. Many companies diminish their effectiveness by treating deals as a linear process. This approach lengthens the time line, exposes the company to the impatience of the markets, and makes it harder to resolve issues early — so they surface later, causing additional delays and difficulties.
Pursuing the stages of the deal iteratively (with substantial overlap and continuous referencing back and forth), managed effectively with great communication throughout the organisation will create the right results.
