More than a third of US CEOs in PwC's 2014 Global CEO Survey say that new products and services offer the main opportunity for growth this year. Technology companies have long relied on M&A to pursue innovation, gain top talent and build competitive advantage. In fact, more than 76 percent of tech executives we surveyed reported that their innovation-focused acquisitions met or exceeded expectations. But if not managed properly, acquisitions can stifle the innovation of both the target company and the acquirer. Technology companies have long relied on M&A to pursue innovation, gain top talent and build competitive advantage.
In this webcast, we explore how leaders in other industry sectors can learn from technology company successes in acquiring innovation. We begin with the elements of an inorganic growth strategy focused on increasing innovation and fueling competitive advantage. Then we discuss real-world applications of how innovation-focused M&A can work outside of the tech sector.
