    Good day,

    Based on what I’ve learned from the Essentials of Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) package, there is a significant similarity in the practices of business analysis rules, regardless of the strategies used. These practices involve processes and tools to define the target company and acquire it. I believe that both the business analyst and the project manager of the acquisition should be responsible for performing these tasks. What are your thoughts on this?

    Your perspective is insightful, and there’s certainly merit in having both business analysts and project managers involved in the acquisition process, especially in performing tasks related to defining the target company and facilitating its acquisition. Here’s why:

    1. Business analysts excel in analyzing business processes and identifying requirements, while project managers specialize in planning and executing complex projects.
    2. By involving both business analysts and project managers, organizations can leverage their respective skills to define the target company, assess its suitability for acquisition, and effectively execute the integration strategy.
    3. With both business analysts and project managers involved, the acquisition process can be streamlined, risks mitigated, and value maximized, leading to a more efficient and effective outcome.
