Companies know that achieving M&A success is as much about people as it is about systems, processes, and synergies. It involves responding quickly, creatively, and honestly to the full range of people challenges they face.
This paper deals with just that: people integration. It provides an overview of some of the human resource and change management challenges companies face during M&A transactions, and an overview of the approach we help clients take to meet them. How organizations respond to those issues—and when—is crucial to the ultimate success of their deals.
