Deal-making is hard, but integration is even harder. If you’re not careful it can drag on months after the transaction closes. Capturing the value of the deal is a balancing act that requires close attention to management, employees, customers and shareholders. Companies that want to capture more value start planning for integration early on in the process. Executing the plan takes months—sometimes a year or more—until the two companies are functioning as one. Doing it right is time well spent.
