Corporate mergers and acquisitions (M&A) professionals -- whether they work at banks, in corporate development groups, or integration teams -- often complain that their industry is falling behind in modern process solutions. While M&A is becoming an increasingly accepted first-line growth strategy for companies around the world, and deal volume continues to set jaw-dropping new records quarter to quarter, the M&A industry itself has not adopted new innovations in technology or techniques since the late 1990s.
"The book, Agile M&A, looks at how Agile, the project management technique that propelled Silicon Valley startups, can be scaled and implemented to improve the entire lifecycle of M&A while increasing value and closing deals faster."
