Better together?!How to do Business Alignment Screening


with Dr. Mai Anh Dao and Prof. Dr. Florian Bauer

We plan synergy realization according to the proposed business case. However, in the end we should implement acquisition measures that were not planned and that will never work, since connecting planning and implementation requires way more effort than assumed. Why is synergy realization so difficult? Some of the reasons are:

  • There are always frictions during integration
  • We always start with assumptions that are subject to change.
  • By our focus on low hanging fruits and costs we usually destroy value.


This webinar is about strategic fit as a constituting element for each acquisition and on how to screen for targets accordingly. Objectivizing target lists and conducting a fitness analysis on strategic insights, not on financial KPIs solely, will be discussed together with the guest speakers.

M&A Screening is broken. Everyone knows why. Nobody had a cure. Until now.

The founders, Mai Anh Dao and Florian Bauer, view target screening as the central strategic task of corporate development, one in which control, transparency, and traceability are crucial. Financial figures are not, as usual, the sole search criteria but merely serve as selection criteria. 


The MADiscover solution digitizes the screening process for enabling M&A managers to identify business opportunities in a strategically driven, transparent and flexible manner. With our AI-based solution, we start where conventional financial KPI and network-driven screening ends.
