Private Equity - Mergers & Acquisitions

Private Equity – Pre-Purchase Culture Due Diligence Evaluation and Report

You are looking at investing in a company, their product looks good, the industry is sound, financials are appealing, you believe that you can turn the company around, yet do you know how skilled, dedicated and motivated the leadership team is, how motivated the workforce is and how happy the clients are?. What if there was a ticking time bomb ready to explode, and clients were to flee, critical staff members were to leave? How valuable would this information be to the decision-making process, on whether the company is a good investment or not, based on the current culture and capabilities of the workforce?

We provide ‘Cultural Due Diligence’ measuring management capabilities and commitment levels, so you can identify who is critical to the future success of the business. The strengths, skills, and engagement levels of the workforce and the value and stability levels of the client base, so you can make an informed decision based on the future potential earnings of the business driven by the culture, people and client aspects of the deal.

Mergers and Acquisitions Cultural Integration Tool                                                    

Our M&A services are offered directly to companies and businesses that advise in the M&A industry, such as management consultants, accounting firms, law firms and private equity companies.

Due Diligence Phase of an M&A

It is reported that a whopping 70% and 90% of M&A’s fail, one key area cited as a cause, is the incorrect matching of executive candidates to drive successful. The ‘People and Culture’ aspect of a successful M&A is often overlooked during the due diligence phase, instead, the focus is placed on the legal and financial aspects of a deal. Ignoring the cultural elements will continue to see M&As not produce the returns that they are capable of and this is where ICOM4 helps. Our evaluation tools provide a time and cost-effective process that quickly identifies the culture of the acquired business vs. the culture of the acquiring business, we look at the skills of management and motivational needs of the workforce, which allows for the most appropriate executive candidate to be placed within the business, in order to support and help the acquisition thrive. Place the wrong executive candidate into the company will result in lower performance levels and in many instances a failed M&A.

The next phase of an M&A is helping companies become ‘Integration ready’.

Integration Phase of an M&A

Once the new culture is confirmed, the ICOM4 process:

  • Benchmarks the culture of the acquiring and acquired company
  • Identifies areas of alignment and misalignment
  • Sets a development pathway to bring both companies into alignment
  • Ensures that the workforce is integration-ready
  • Raises the success rate of integration by up to 70%

Strategic Leadership Development & Workforce Engagement

Your business objectives, values, and goals are just a set of words and only become realized through the actions of your people. 

We have identified four fundamental building blocks that influence your leaders/managers ability execute goals by mastering being: forward-thinking, collaborative, organized and agile and responsive to change. We have learned that when you link these fundamental areas to business objectives – using a quantifiable measurement process, such as ICOM4 – you have powerful data at your fingertips, that will allow you to develop the skills and behaviors of leaders in alignment with the strategies and goals of the company, without this, you will experience deja vu over and over, finding your leadership right back where you started, as you scratch your head, wondering why leaders behaviors are not supporting or achieving business outcomes.

ICOM4’s unique approach links three disciplines: leadership styles, leadership competencies, and business drivers into a powerful measurement system that identifies leadership development priorities, that when mastered will help leader’s achieve their targets, motivate their team and raise employee engagement levels.

Strategic Execution

Successful strategic execution requires absolute leadership clarity, including the alignment of leaders behaviors with management ethos and the strategic goals of the company. This leadership capability begins at the top and when top management layers are misaligned, it begins to filter into the organization and ultimately impacts the workforce’s ability to support and execute goals.

Getting ‘smart’ data that shows an executive team how the current skills and behaviors of their leaders are supporting or hindering their ability to reach such goals is a critical step that is often ignored, during the execution phase.

ICOM4 provides real-time information that will uncover key areas that impact execution and allows quality decisions to be made around where to develop leadership so that the workforce can support the strategy.

Implementing Transformational Change

Business performance and their ability to implement new concepts and ideas is heavily influenced by the DNA of the workforce therefore when the behaviors and actions ‘DNA’ of your workforce are clearly linked to business outcomes, this allows you to obtain higher levels of control over any change initiative.

ICOM4’s approach gathers feedback spanning the executive team, through the workforce, all the way to the client.  The data we gather will help you compare and align the behaviors and actions of the workforce across various demographics, assessing their ability to embrace and implement change. When each business area takes charge of their own ability to apply chance, this drives a successful campaign.

The first step in this process it to link key behaviors and actions to the changes that you are attempting to achieve, and then identifying how the current skills of the workforce are supporting or hindering achieving goals

ICOM4, by design, is a catalyst for adaptability in companies through the building of new capability that facilitates proactive change.

But Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

A Few Things We Are Good At

With decades of experience in management consulting, we found that when clients came to us with issues or performance needs the process of uncovering and getting to the root causes of what was going on was time-consuming and costly. So we went on a journey to find a way to quickly and accurately uncover and link workforce capabilities and organizational performance to the needs of the company so that the right solutions can be quickly applied. We removed the time-consuming process of extensive focus groups and interviewing of staff, and the subjective evaluation of issues, and developed a solution that allows our clients to effectively identify and resolve core issues so they can get back to business.
