Many M&A transactions fail to realize the synergies that are often highlighted when a transaction is first announced. After a company has developed its M&A strategy and executed the deal, the bottom line comes down to successful integration.

The ability to make and implement decisions rapidly is crucial to maintaining a competitive edge.
