Mergers and Acquisitions strategies can be used to boost the coherence of consumer products companies and improve their performance, explains J. Neely in the latest episode of Mergercast by Booz & Company.
Neely, a partner at Booz & Company, is an expert on coherence and the consumer products industry. This episode of Mergercast by Booz & Company, No. 31, is the first in a three-part series exploring the topic of coherence-driven M&A.
Coherence, the intentional alignment of an organization’s products and services around a specific set of capabilities, yields stronger earning power and higher rates of return over time by helping firms identify these capabilities and leverage them more effectively.
“Companies involved in an M&A deal should ask how the deal will advance or align to their unique capabilities set as it relates to their products and services. By precisely defining the capabilities, competencies or skills that distinguish a company’s unique business model and by aligning portfolios accordingly through an acquisition, they can outperform their peers,” says Neely.
Neely also addresses how merger transactions can further a capabilities strategy and how companies can fine-tune their M&A strategy to maximize coherence.
