With each addition to the investment portfolio, private equity firms must rapidly evaluate the leadership skills and bench strength of every newly acquired company. When changes are required, they need to happen swiftly but sensitively, maximizing value without risking disruptions in daily operations or the unwanted departures of critical personnel.
