Integration Program Management Office
The Integration Program Management Office (“PMO”) coordinates the long list of tasks for integration in harmony. From integration kickoff through the first year of ownership, we help the organization plan and stick to the decision-making process and timeline defined at acquisition. The PMO is the epicenter of all integration nodes and is equipped to carry through the planned tasks and resolve the ‘not-so-planned’ tasks. We keep pace with the timeline but also access risk factors that could cause material impact to the overall project. The PMO works as the ‘team with the clipboard’ to maintain focus on executing the integration through the challenges to ensure that the portfolio company significantly adds to the fund’s valuation.
