Wave supports two important streams of merger activities: integration planning and value capture. Please note that you may only have visibility into either integration planning or value capture, not both.
Integration planning activities include those related to planning the merger and getting the new company ready for Day 1. In Wave, these initiatives are essentially a series of activities that are assigned to stakeholders across the organization. As a result, integration initiative cards are not very detailed, with relatively few dropdowns and fields.
Value Capture (VC)
Value capture activities are focused on identifying synergies to capture revenues and reduce costs. VC initiative cards are more complex than integration initiative cards because of the additional details that are captured, most notably synergy tracking.
