2023 Together - NA359 - Supply Chain: The Key to Successful Integrations- On Demand
As a group, this panel has decades of healthcare experience and other supply chain-related industries. Across the business spectrum, integration after merger and acquisition (M&A) has become one of the most important projects a group can undertake. And while the financial side is generally the driver, supply chain is the most integral. The Harvard Business Review reported that between 70% and 90% of acquisitions fail.1 The M&A trend is to quickly transition supply chain activities into the acquiring healthcare organization, but there are several pitfalls to consider before blindly absorbing supply chain functions. Some private-equity backed acquisition groups don’t fully understand the importance of complete integration by ensuring supply chain is an integral part of the process. It is imperative for any acquisition group to understand the supply chain requirements, as well as the challenges, in performing a successful integration.
