According to research from Harvard Business School, over 70% of corporate mergers and acquisitions destroy shareholder value. These failed transactions don’t just negatively impact the buyer, they impair customers, weaken suppliers, and damage careers. When deals fail, business leaders frequently point to cultural differences as the culprit. Successful M&A requires companies to overcome the culture clashes that naturally arise when two firms come together.
The HR Practitioner’s Guide to Cultural Integration in Mergers & Acquisitions shows you how to avoid the common pitfalls in M&A, overcoming culture clash and driving deal value.
