66. Winding a Business Down
Had a great interview last week with Ajit Sane, Director IT M&A at Agilent Technologies. Ajit is an M&A professional with multiple years of experience in leading acquisitions, integrations and divestitures. Our topic of discussion is how to wind a business down with minimal customer and people disruption.
Some topics we covered include the planning behind a wind down, challenges you can expect, and protecting your assets. Ajit reminds the audience your company's biggest assets are your employees and your customers, so it's important to prioritize them.
