Summary

What is Post-Merger Integration? Meaning.

Post-Merger Integration became a popular management term in the 1990s as it became increasingly clear that while signing off M&A deals was easy, making them work was much more difficult.


Merger failures usually revolve around people issues -- loss of key staff, culture clash, fear-uncertainty-doubt, and last but not least, poor communication and interaction between employees of the merging organizations.


This knowledge center revolves around managing integration issues AFTER a merger or acquisition has taken place. Please refer to Acquisition Integration Approaches for more information about PREPARING a merger or acquisition at the strategic level.
