Episode 24: Velocity and impatience
Published: June 23, 2009
In this episode, Tom Flaherty, a Senior Partner at Strategy&, discusses the concept of velocity and impatience as it impacts the deal environment. He approaches this topic, which is described in the book "Merge ahead: Mastering the five enduring trends of artful M&A" by Gerald Adolph and Justin Pettit, by exploring: whether the pace of business has become too fast; the reason deals are closing more quickly today and its implications for merger integration; and the need for interlocking integration plans, ranging from immediate to 100-day and 1,000-day.
