Divesting for value
Implementing a successful divestiture is one of the most demanding and complex initiatives an organization can undertake. As senior executives increasingly refine and focus their business portfolio, they are challenged with the task of how to effectively divest.
Our Divesting for Value information guide looks at effective divestiture planning, how to develop repeatable and efficient processes and explores how operational separation and carve-out financials can help drive value in divestitures.
