Leadership Growth Preparedness Study (GPS)
According to the Harvard Business Review, over 70 percent of all mergers and acquisitions fail to achieve their anticipated strategic and financial objectives. Failure is often attributed to various factors including management styles, poor communication, loss of key talent, incompatible cultures, lack of trust and uncertainty of long-term goals.
Private equity firms typically excel at identifying critical strategic levers that drive improved performance but often lack the resources and/or place less emphasis on the analysis of the leadership team charged with executing the plan.
