Operational due diligence (ODD) is a major value driver in a transaction when done correctly. Companies and M&A professionals agree that a key factor in driving value creation and measuring successful business combinations is utilizing elements of operational due diligence. ODD not only identifies risk, but assists in quantifying and prioritizing post-close integration plans.
