Mergers and acquisitions play a key role in multinational companies’ growth and globalization strategies. However, a high percentage of M&A initiatives end up failing, often due to shortfalls in the management of the people dimension of the post-merger integration (PMI) process. These situations are particularly challenging when they cross borders and include complex reorganizations.
This highly interactive program strengthens the competencies of business leaders, managers, and members of M&A teams. The program places particular emphasis on the human element of the PMI process, especially in international business environments and cross-cultural settings. Participants leave with a virtual toolbox, designed to be an immediately actionable resource for any PMI or change management project.
Participants come away from this five-day program with the knowledge and enhanced competencies to more effectively manage PMI initiatives in cross-cultural settings and complex business environments. The program places particular emphasis on the human element of change management in pre- and post-merger integration processes.
