In a bylined piece for Real Deals, Andros Payne, Managing Partner and Founder of Humatica, discusses the shift from traditional due diligence to today’s forward-looking, value creation-focused DD. Humatica and Baird Capital have had a relationship for over ten years, with Humatica’s talented team regularly providing organizational due diligence for a variety of investments completed by Baird Capital’s global private equity team.

Dennis Hall, Global Head of Portfolio Management at Baird Capital, works closely with Payne and offered thoughts:

“We have lots of diligence tools, but how do we agree on and then execute the path to value? A big part is not covered by traditional DD. Understanding the team and organisation’s capability to executive are fundamental,” said Hall.

Payne added, “Baird Capital has been on the leading edge of implementing human capital and organisational effectiveness reviews as part of their investment process.”
