The structural transformation of a business or company is an increasingly common challenge, whether intended to bring efficiency, increase capacity or reduce overheads, or to re-purpose the business for the future, in line with its strategy. Such issues are magnified when bringing together the business operations of two previously separate businesses, in a post-merger or post-acquisition integration.
Challenges and solutions
Companies which have grown historically or organically usually have deeply rooted corporate cultures, with complex and inconsistent IT system landscapes, and a lack of process transparency. Any transformation project is characterised by high expectations and time pressure but these demands are multiplied when combining newly merged companies. AVANTALION uses process-based modelling to transparently identify objective savings potentials and synergy effects, along with appropriate organisational changes. This is accompanied by a structured change management approach, including communication measures to support a successful and sustainable implementation.
