Traditional vs. Agile M&A Integration

This graphic outlines the key differences between the traditional and Agile way of conducting due diligence and integration. Traditionally, due diligence and integration are managed as separate and unrelated deal processes. Diligence is completed and then integration begins. However, this causes communication breakdown, longer deal timelines and an ill-informed decision making process. Agile suggests a smarter more efficient means of working the two processes in parallel with one another, reducing deal cost and timeline by 30 to 40 percent.

Traditional vs. Agile Due Diligence Process

This graphic outlines the key differences between the traditional and Agile way of conducting the due diligence process.

Agile M&A has developed a means for completing due diligence in small, incremental workflows to gain efficiency and close deals faster.
