Corporate strategy involves a proprietary set of actions that enables a company to be worth more than just the sum of its parts. The most critical role of the center is to help its business units achieve leadership positions.

Mergers & Acquisitions
WEALTHINGS helps companies improve their odds of successful M&A through an integrated, battle-tested approach that links acquisition strategy, diligence and merger integration.
Successful deal making requires a well-defined strategy and experience. The question behind every deal should be: "How will buying this asset make my existing business more valuable, and how will I bring value to the asset I am buying?" Successful deals have an investment theme that is founded on a firm's portfolio needs and clearly tied to growth strategy.
Sellers have a reason for selling. You need to know what you are buying and how you will make the business more valuable. Strategic due diligence is a forward-looking process that helps you understand how you can create value through an acquisition. The best acquirers investigate targets on what's really important, identifying the key sources of ongoing value and foreseen troubles.
To make a deal pay off, you have to nail a short list of critical actions. But merging two companies also requires rigorous follow-through on a long list of integration tasks, large and small. Doing both is hard. Part of the answer lies in a few, powerful guiding principles: integrate where it matters and act with deliberate speed. Deals undertaken to grow a company’s scale usually require a lot of integration while deals that expand the scope of the business often need a lighter touch.
Transition & Change Management
Transition is different from change and it is very often the transition that people resist - not the change itself. The transition needs to be understood and managed especially where the change is radical. Staff will be at different stages along the change curve and the emotional response to change needs to be recognized.
It involves a shift in the external situation. It is about the events or circumstances which impact on and affect the organization. For example, a new leader, changes in government policy, technology, merger, etc. Thus, change is typically outcome or results focused, in that organizational change is usually a solution to someone's perception of a problem or an opportunity. It is a regulation process.
It is an internal, three-phase psychological re-orientation that people go through as they come to terms with a change. It is a process, an inner experience not necessarily focused on outcome or results. It is timed differently from the external changes and has less definition than the changes it accompanies. It is a paradigm shift.
