The value premium of organic growth

Powering growth with programmatic M&A

An organization's level of M&A activity has a clear link to long-term value creation. Firms that build M&A capabilities at scale—including both divesting and acquiring businesses—outperform their peers over the long term.

Join our live video webcast on Thursday, November 15, 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. ET/3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. GMT, as McKinsey experts Andy West and Kate Siegel share McKinsey’s latest research on value creation through M&A.

During this session, you will learn how to:

  • Attract the ideal companies to your deal transaction
  • Anticipate and tackle pain points in the M&A process
  • Ensure central functions deliver operational efficiency

You will also have a chance to ask questions of the presenters throughout the session. Not sure you will be able to attend the live session?
