Steady at the Controls

M&A capability development


A pilot gains confidence at the controls through experience. The same is true of companies that engage in mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. Serial, and even less-frequent, dealmakers are eager to sustain momentum and growth by applying the leading practices and knowledge they’ve gained from previous transactions.

But not all deals are the same. They vary in size, complexity and the organizational commitment required. From deal to deal, it’s important to understand what processes, tools and skillsets are required, especially when transacting simultaneous deals. Companies with extensive M&A experience know firsthand the criticality of having a sound team structure and approach from the outset of a transaction, in addition to leveraging the right tools and resources.

Deloitte can help companies develop and strengthen their M&A capabilities by guiding them in the organizational processes, roles and skills required for transaction results. Leveraging experience gained in more than 2,000 transactions, we offer insights into important deal considerations and effective practices for different corporate cultures and decision-making frameworks, tailored to your specific requirements.
