Merger & Acquisition Integration

What have you done to prepare for “Day One”?

What is your integration plan and combined operating model for the first 100 days after the deal is completed?

Is there a formal plan in place to focus on achieving integration objectives, yet ensure that the organization is not totally distracted (i.e. it still keeps its eye on the “normal” business)?

How will you judge the success of this deal in one year’s time?

The chaos surrounding a transition often impedes the management’s ability to effectively allocate focus on maintaining current operations, realizing valuable deal synergies and achieving timely integration. Stakeholder expectations are often mismanaged and issues important to employees overlooked.

  • Defining the integration strategy
