LEVERAGE MANAGEMENT MATURITY MODEL
ClearEdge has developed its methodology over a decade of deal-making in cooperation with our Executive Advisory Board. Organizations who excel in these 9 areas consistently demonstrate best-in-class deal execution:
Early Warning System
Do we have an organized approach to starting deals on time?
Risk Assessment & Inspection
Do we understand all contractual and business risks?
Forecast & Modeling
How much product/service do we need, and when do we need it?
Deal Timeline Development
Have we documented a calendar of deal-making activities?
How might supplier sales systems and motivations affect my deal?
Deal Option Development
What deal alternatives or "Plan Bs" do we have?
What information will we protect, and what will we share?
Are executives informed, aligned and participating on the deal?
Are we controlling the story with credible and consistent messages?
