You’ve decided to make an acquisition. You’ve done your homework and found the right company with the right strategic fit. You’ve completed your diligence reviews and examined the numbers from every angle. You’ve considered all of the likely market reactions. In short, you’re convinced this deal represents and excellent opportunity.
But you also know it won’t be an easy road.
You suspect the two corporate cultures might not mesh as tightly as you’d like. You already know there will be extensive job overlap and your people know it too. You fear that the best-and-the-brightest at both companies may already be headed for the exits. Your competitors are watching closely and ready to seize your key customers. Your diligence reports have revealed a number of issues in the target which will require urgent and significant change.
In short, you anticipate more than a few challenges during the all-important integration of work-practices, decision making, human resources (HR) policies and processes, technology, operations and organisational reporting relationships. Indeed, the very strategic rationale for the deal may be at risk if you cannot overcome these challenges.
