M&A Talk: Scott Whitaker

Failure Rate of Integrations Pt 2

16 February 2016


If so much has been written and documented about the causes of the failure rate of Integrations, and about reasonable solutions, why does the problem still exist?

We continue our Talk with Scott Whitaker, this time with more of a focus on the personal level, discussing what executives and employees can do to improve the success rate of their Integrations.

Are there aspects of an organization and Integration team that senior managers are afraid to change? That cause fear in even the most experienced manager? Scott will share his suggestions for Corporate Development officers or IMO executives trying to convince senior management in their firm that approaching the problem differently would improve the success rate.
