Private Equity – Making the Investment Secure
An industry where it pays not to be wrong.
When there are millions of dollars at stake, not to mention careers and livelihoods, it’s fairly important to have a close handle on things.
But there’s still one facet of the PE industry that’s loose and not tied down. It’s not about the numbers, it’s about the people. If you can’t predict how a portfolio management team will work together to meet its changing challenges, your exit is at risk.
And if that’s the case, you may not be able to deliver your end of the bargain to your GP firm and LP partners.
No-one likes to be wrong or caught out by an accident that was always waiting to happen. It’s vital to know if the company’s management team is well put together or if they are just papering over the cracks. Do they really collaborate well or are they simply running departmental silos?
The problem is easily fixable with a dashboard tool that tells you how well the portfolio leadership works together as a team. It’s an astounding development, yet it’s not new. It’s been used by major non-PE players for over a decade.
Armed with this dashboard, part of the Method Teaming stable, you are far less likely to experience an unpleasant surprise in the portfolio that you then have to explain to colleagues. And a profitable exit will be not only more predictable but potentially mature faster and therefore able to be brought forward in the calendar.
The dashboard tool will also help you maximise the chance that your next exit brings in a bigger multiple than forecast. It will help you ensure that productivity, quality and speed are all exemplary.
It’s not rocket science. It’s people science.
