Getting the most out of the deal
Mercer's acclaimed M&A Ready™ Executive Development Program consists of an intensive and highly interactive two-day session covering every deal phase. You will gain valuable insights into the key people risks and opportunities for various deal types. This will enable you to identify and manage real-world people-related challenges, optimize the price paid and capture greater synergies from your transaction.
You will learn how to strategically plan and effectively execute so you can meet challenges that arise during the deal. Throughout the program, Mercer M&A Transaction consultants and other participants will share their deal experiences – including best practices and lessons learned.
Mercer’s 30 years of M&A experience proves that strategic pre-deal preparation improves the organization’s ability to support successful transactions. We believe that early strategy and planning helps avoid costly mistakes, captures greater synergies and improve overall results.
