Does Your Business Need Post-Merger Integration Training?

Why Your Business Needs Post-Merger Integration Training

Delivering a successful post-merger integration can be one of the most challenging projects of an executive’s career.   Demanding revenue growth and cost reduction targets are typically built into the business case for an acquisition.  Targets that would be a challenge to meet within a single company, but the challenges are magnified when two different companies, often spanning multiple countries, are brought together.

The Merger Training Institute’s Successful Post-Merger Integration training course is designed to teach directors and managers the skills they will need to execute an effective post-merger integration that meets or better still exceeds the pre-acquisition business case.



Why Is A Post-Merger Integration Training Course Essential?

Post-merger integration is the delivery phase of the mergers and acquisitions process.  The phase in which a deal should start to make money in contrast to the heavy expenditures on due diligence and legal costs in the acquisition process.  Too many companies make expensive integration mistakes by paying insufficient attention to the employee skills and business processes that are essential to deliver an M&A integration. Too often this means they fail to deliver the expected benefits.

Post-merger integration of two separate organisations throws up different challenges than a business change or cost-reduction project inside a single company.  It is essential that the members and leaders of a post-merger integration project receive specialist post-merger integration training to fully understand the special challenges of post-merger integration, and learn how to apply techniques developed by the world’s best companies to deliver value from their acquisitions.


What Is Taught At The Merger Training Institute’s Successful Post-Merger Integration Training Course?

Delegates to the Successful Post Merger Integration training course are taught a proven, best practice approach to running a controlled post-merger integration process that delivers expected synergies while minimising operational risk.  This post-merger integration training course provides a solid grounding in the techniques used by some of the world’s most successful companies to deliver value from their acquisition programmes. Delegates are provided with templates and processes that can be taken back to their business and used to give an immediate professional edge to post-merger integration activity.

The Successful Post-Merger Integration training course explores and provides solutions to the most challenging issues faced in any post-acquisition integration:

  • Making sure the business vision and targets developed by the pre-deal acquisition team are delivered in the integration phase;
  • Deciding the most appropriate level of integration;
  • Establishing control over the integration process and managing risk;
  • Keeping the integration team and the combined management team focused on the delivery of synergies;
  • Avoiding post-integration of management style and organisational culture;
  • Realistic objectives for the crucial first 100 days.
