Methodology Development-Acquisition and Business Integration

Acquisition and Business Integration Toolkit

Origin Energy is a top 100 ASX listed company involved in gas and oil exploration and production, energy retailing, power generation and utility network management. The BOND Program was the integration of Sun Retail (Energex – A Queensland Electricity business) into Origin Energy. This change resulted in Origin Energy’s mass market customer base doubling in size.

Core Consulting Group was engaged to analyse the processes that the existing project managers and stream leads were following. We were requested as well to review the processes used in the bid for Origin Energy’s recent acquisition of Sun Retail in Queensland. Out of this review, Core Consulting Group was tasked to develop what would become Origin Energy’s mandated program / project methodology for all future Acquisition and Business Integration programs.

Core Consulting Group presented a thoroughly refined and interactive Acquisition and Integration toolkit including framework, processes and templates. The toolkit has been made available online within Origin Energy for future Acquisition Programs to draw down from.
