MERGERS: Tips for a successful consolidation

Unhealthy acquirers destroy value, while healthy acquirers create value and tilt the odds toward success.

Three behaviors related to building organizational health in merger situations are identified by the management consulting firm McKinsey & Co.  The first is talent management – or how to decide who will work where (and who will be let go) in the consolidated organization.  The second is addressing miscommunication and misinterpretation.  The third is running a tight ship.  Organizations considering a merger should conduct due diligence on the prospective partner but also self-diligence on their own operations.
