Update: After putting together this infographic, we liked the idea of these "sprints" so much that we decided to explore it in a full ebook. In December 2022, we published "Private Equity’s Sprint to Value Creation: 14 strategies to move faster toward boosted profits and returns." Get your copy.

With the typical hold time for private equity investments hovering around five years, investors and management teams have to strategize carefully and get a fast start to maximize value in a compressed period of time.
