The 3-year plan is a euphemism for a short-term plan designed to ensure stability and quick results, while the 100-day plan is considered to be an end state or a company's long-term destination. It's critical to connect those two plans during a merger, especially given the tight economic situation facing many companies today
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 8, 2008 - Mergercast by Booz & Company has released Episode 15 - The 3-Year, 100-
Gerald Adolph, Booz & Company Senior Partner and head of its Mergers and Restructurings group, discusses the importance of integration planning that incorporates both the first 100 days and the merged organization's longer-term strategic goals. He explores three areas where this type of planning is most important -- building capabilities, creating a programmatic approach and remembering the softer side of integration -- as well as analyzing the impact of the current economic environment.
"The 3-year plan is a euphemism for a short-term plan designed to ensure stability and quick results, while the 100-day plan is considered to be an end state or a company's long-term destination. It's critical to connect those two plans during a merger, especially given the tight economic situation facing many companies today," said Adolph.
