Leading through transition

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) present both opportunities and challenges for the executive team charged with leading the organization through these transactions. M&A activities drive significant change within your organization and can create complex situations, especially when it comes to managing employee transition. After all, getting it right with your organizations’ greatest asset – your people -- is critical to Day One success and beyond.

This compendium, "Leading Through Transition: Perspectives on the People Side of M&A," is intended to provide company leaders with a deep dive into the human capital complexities you are likely to face during an M&A transaction. The articles explore many of the common people-related integration challenges and offer recommendations for how to approach these situations to meet your organization’s specific needs.

We have divided the articles into five chapters that span the M&A lifecycle: due diligence, integration management, integration, post-merger integration and divestiture. The articles can be read beginning to end, or individually by going directly to the chapter that pertains to your current interest or situation.

We hope you find this compendium and its breadth of topics a helpful resource. To discuss any of the ideas presented here, please contact one of us.
