Human Capital Planning/ Management Team Due Diligence

Who are we backing?

Can the team scale and grow with the business?

How do we support and work with the team?

As a specialist in assessing management teams of venture capital and private equity backed businesses, we understand the challenges management teams and investors face. Whether seeking to professionalise, pivot or supercharge a business, an investment creates a change in cadence, complexity and expectation that management must adapt to quickly. Understanding the management team strengths, potential, gaps, development opportunities and working styles is crucial as part of any pre deal assessment of a business.

The Confidas People Human Capital Roadmap is a key part of the value creation strategy of any investment we work on.

C-Suite Candidate Selection & Comparison

Adding to any management team is a sensitive process. Mistakes cost time, money and emotional capital whereas the right hire can transform an underperfroming business function.

A comprehensive assessment and comparison of final stage candidates allows investors and existing management peace of mind that an informed, evidence based decision can be made, aids onboarding and removes the unconscious bias in a hiring process.

“We used Confidas People to help assess people remotely when face to face meetings were difficult and to keep a process moving during the shutdown. This not only helped to keep candidates engaged but also added some real insight to help guide our decision making. We will definitely continue to involve Confidas People in management assessments for deals we are considering during this period as it really helps get under the skin of who we are backing under normal circumstances but, which is so much harder without the ability to meet in person”.

Team and Individual Development and Coaching

In a private equity backed business, there is an urgency to improve all aspects of the organisation in order to deliver the desired returns. Leveraging people and teamwork improvements through increased self-awareness, understanding how to move out of a particular mindset or working together more effectively is crucial.

One to one coaching and team development sessions should contribute to the value creation strategy and can help management achieve their goals faster and more smoothly.

Employee Engagement

For an investment to be successful, investors, management and employees must be aligned in order to achieve the best results possible. An inclusive approach to develop and understanding and listen to the perspective of those outside the senior executive team provides an insightful mixture of quantitative and qualitative data on the organisation’s culture, needs and gaps.

Retention and engagement of employees has a higher ROI than acquisition or recruitment however the emphasis is on the urgent (we need to fill a role), rather than the important.

Management Reset

Following an investment, plans do not always run smoothly. Individual agendas, differing expectations or personal values and team members who struggle to match the pace of growth required can lead to arguments, broken trust and working relationships, and ultimately a lack of clarity over how to move forward.

An investor or board member will be aware there are issues, however, it can be difficult to fully understand the facts or identify the changes required to move the business back towards the value creation plan. An independent, investigative management reset process can identify and articulate the problems, document issues and provide clear, informed recommendations about the changes in the management team required to move forward positively for all parties involved.
