Thoughts on Post Merger Integration ~ What Works, Culture, Leaders, Staffing

Thoughts on Post Merger Integration ~ What Works, Culture, Leaders, Staffing | Developing and enabling leadership | Scoop.it

14 large-scale global PMI projects in my career, each one spanning 3-5 years. Inevitably, I found 4 major fish on the plate each time:

 

1) The impact of corporate cultural diversity on the merger.

   

2) The differences in national and ethnic cultures involved in the merger

  

3) The “change of power” political dynamic on the part of the acquired,  and the need to stablise and align an effective power structure.

  

4) The competence of managers handling the complex labour of integration of units, processes and people.

  

While it is very lucrative to do many cross culture seminars in the early PMI phase, this not the way to start.
