International Merger Program of Two European Domestic Appliances Companies

"It helped us efficiently track value created out of this program"

Challenge

Two key domestic appliances players were merging and needed to ensure a smooth transition across four main locations and to strengthen existing regional brands by leveraging the know-how of a household-name brand.

Approach

Oracle Primavera was chosen to facilitate both pre-close integration planning and post-close integration execution, specifically:

  • Pre-close integration planning
    • Tracing and monitoring progress of > 290 deliverables across 25 teams
    • Interdependency mapping and resolution tracking
  • Post-close integration execution
    • Synergy allocation and tracking over six dimensions including brand, production plant, country, organization, etc.

Results

Oracle Primavera ensured the smooth transition of the two merged companies by providing transparency on sources of synergy within the staged 4-year implementation plan and facilitating communication irrespective of location and function through:

  • Providing a real-time reporting tool to discuss and present the status of implementation in regular function and leadership reviews
  • Enhancing IMO problem solving and process management across regions and locations
  • Enabling consistent communication across teams in different geographies and functions
