Ensure deal success with our digital upskilling solution PMI2go

The transaction is close to signing – now it is important to start the integration early. This integration process presents a complex challenge in the context of mergers and acquisitions. To support management and key employees during this journey, PwC offers the digital tool PMI2go as a complementary solution to M&A integration advisory services. The current COVID-19 crisis in particular underlines the importance of e-learning and how it enables time efficient and pragmatic onboarding of employees. Upskilling as early as possible is a crucial success factor to delivering post deal value by having involved key employees on the same knowledge base and prepared for upcoming challenges – with the help of our PMI2go tool, this can be done anytime and anywhere.

Your Situation

During M&A integrations it comes down to three main challenges

  • Management must fulfill the business plan and achieve synergy targets – while adhering to an often tight timeline. Only then can the desired deal value be generated from a transaction. 
  • Involved people need to be taken along the integration journey in a complex project setup. In this change process, communication is of utmost importance. 
  • Finding the right balance between daily work and integration effort

Are you facing an M&A integration and not sure how to tackle upcoming challenges?
Are your colleagues new to the situation of integrating two businesses, hence seeking for necessary knowledge & capabilities?
Does your organisation prefer a virtual upskilling given the current COVID-19 crisis?
