Each service in our KPMG’s Strategy Practice is built upon KPMG’s 9 Levers of Value Framework, which can be used to decompose, analyze and re-orient your business. The Framework represents the 9 key elements of your organization's financial, business and operating model, and can be implemented to analyze and re-orient your business. It allows you to:

  • Study your business in detail, enabling an exhaustive view of the entire enterprise;
  • Enhance your CEO's vision by providing a comprehensive structure to organize multiple relevant topics at the same time and understand the trade-offs and interplay between them;
  • Finally provide an integrated path to execution which increases your company’s ability to achieve the financial ambition.

Integration & Separation

Being successful requires a balance between enhancing value while mitigating risks. Being able to quickly invest or divest while maintaining control of your processes and protecting business as usual is critical. But profit is no longer the only business goal. As companies become more purpose driven, they start rethinking their operations and investments. You can choose to sell non-core business aspects or activities that no longer fit your 'purpose'. This frees up room for investments in activities and other companies that match the new found focus.

KPMG’s Integration & Separation approach helps you throughout the whole integration and separation process, structured around key integration/separation modules, which allows you to pick and choose the relevant modules for your situation.

Integration Reach the top


Helping clients throughout the end-to-end integration process, structured around key integration modules which allows the client to choose the relevant modules for their situation.

Integrating a new organization into your business is usually a complex process. However, investing in the right acquisition can help you build up your know-how, allows you to refocus on your purpose and ultimately will help you grow. In order to fully capture the value of an acquisition, we can help you align all integration aspects, including all strategic, legal and fiscal matters, data science and change management.

Separation in the opposite direction


Helping clients throughout the end-to-end separation process, structured around key separation modules which allows the client to choose the relevant modules for their situation.

Your company may have many reasons to undertake divestitures. You can try to strengthen balance sheets by selling non-core businesses, simplify businesses by selling non-core brands, achieve a new strategic direction by spinning off a division or sell a business unit by regulatory mandate. These complex deals require a detailed approach with clear objectives, and that’s where we can help you.
