The Hidden Heroes of the IMO: Superpowers and Abilities of Integration Leaders & Program Managers
It has been said that “M&A success is a top-down, strategy led endeavor, driven by superb, bottom-up program management, planning, and execution.” Said another way, M&A is typically NOT successful unless you have BOTH of those elements fully operational and effective. Accomplishing that task requires some uniquely talented individuals called M&A Integration Leaders and M&A Integration Program Managers. Those “hidden heroes” of the IMO (Integration Management Office) working tirelessly across the deal lifecycle and throughout the organization to enable the deal thesis to be realized.
Some have called these all essential individuals “unicorns” in that they are rare indeed. We prefer “Hidden Heroes.” They are out there, waiting to lead these mission-critical roles. You just need to know what to look for, what to ask of them, and how to enable them for success.
This webinar will explore these critical M&A roles and what you can to unleash these secret powers in your next M&A deal.
