That’s a great point Nancee. Behavioural analysis plays an integral role because the longer something drags out, the more biased the person is to see it through and the less likely they are able to cut their losses. This provides a challenge for dynamic due diligence processes, vs. rigid ones. I think it is difficult to remain emotionally junattached throughout the process, especially through the HR DD phase and understanding who the employees are on the other side of the table. It is very wrong to believe you will get to know who they are in a few week period. I believe this is where many threats will present themselves and not appear until the PMI stage, but I don’t have the experience to actually back this up.
