In Bain & Co’s recently released Global Private Equity Report 2021, 71% of survey respondents said the caliber of the management team is the main source of deal success. 64% of respondents believe unsuccessful exits are due in part to the management team lacking the requisite skills – only 1% less than the top answer, unfavorable shifts in industry or competitive dynamics.
Bain concluded that “many firms see the value creation plan as an indispensable guide for planning – except when it comes to determining specifically who they need to execute those plans.” By failing to identify a nuanced set of competencies needed across the management team for a particular company at its stage of growth to achieve operational goals, firms are leaving money on the table.
On Friday, June 25, our panel of successful PE-Backed CEOs will be discussing how to create a high-performing management team and best execute a cultural transformation in order to drive returns over a portfolio company's next stage of growth.
We will focus on the strategies CEOs and their investors can use to generate returns and "de-risk" investments by creating a high-performance team, driving cultural transformation, and aligning operational capability with growth objectives.
