Merger and Acquisition Integration

Once a merger or acquisition is a real possibility it is time to take specific and aggressive measures to ensure that you are prepared to meet the significant challenges of integrating the two companies. The stakes are high. There is a sizable investment of company resources involved and mergers and acquisitions are high profile events that have huge impacts on employees. These events are watched carefully by investors and analysts. Your challenges include: (1) the need to move quickly; (2) the need for a high level of organization and intensely integrated management for the very complex and pervasive integration endeavor, and (3) the need to obtain some early wins in the process.

Saville Consulting Services has provided M&A integration assistance to a number of companies in the USA and abroad. Dr. Saville has also appeared as a speaker on the subject of M&A integration at dozens of conferences and seminars (see the list of speeches).
