"If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there."
Companies that want to improve their position in the marketplace by providing meaningful opportunities for employees to use their unique talents at both the individual and team levels are walking down the path of Organizational Development.
At The Marlyn Group, we help clients set, develop, deploy and measure their company wide goals through Strategic Planning. For those organizations implementing a major change - a new client service, an automated internal process - our Change Management solutions and tools can help employees embrace what the change is and as importantly, the value of the change. And if you're wondering whether your locations are delivering the fundamental client covenant: revenue integrity and maximization, our Operational Assessment is an objective evaluation to learn what's working, what's not and the tools to improve those aspects of an operation that have yet to meet their full potential.
It's pretty typical reading these days to come across some sort of statistic stating half of the acquisitions completed in the previous year have eroded – as opposed to increased – shareholder value. This statistic makes it feel as if successful M&A's are more a game of chance than a business model to support sustained growth. However, seasoned buyers know executing a disciplined strategy when integrating, not luck, ensure acquisition value propositions are realized.
The Marlyn Group has comprehensive experience with integrating parking companies, at varying sizes, and appreciates integrations, from the people perspective are a process of transition, once the transaction is finalized. In addition to due diligence work during the sale process, we design integration plans and lead project teams that acclimate new employees, assess talent to ensure the right people are in the right job and deploy comprehensive communications plans (an often overlooked yet crucial piece to the integration puzzle) so key stakeholders are in the know throughout. Lastly, we leave clients with a support plan that helps HR ensure the change stays in steady-state…until the next acquisition candidate is landed.
