3 Steps to Surviving M&A

It's all about harmony


The human resources part of the equation is by far the most personal and difficult. If companies properly address these three steps, the organizational structure should be created as they harmonize the processes, and staffing requirements and skills required will fall into place as part of the plans. This will help eliminate some of the angst and help insure the right people are in the right functions while leveraging the strength of the new combined entity.

M&A can be the best course of action for a company looking to expand its product offering, branch off into new geographic regions or gain a larger stake in the market. But before moving forward, companies need to take a good look at the agreements, processes and systems in place within the company and truly understand the value each brings to the organization. A little preplanning and organization can make the process much more seamless and much more profitable.
