Mergers and acquisitions (M&As) are among the biggest challenges for enterprises and their IT organisations to navigate. Conventional leadership and management techniques often are not enough.
With M&A activity set to rise, and IT’s role becoming ever more critical in ensuring integration success, it pays for CIOs in both the public and private sectors to develop world-class M&A integration capabilities.
Reaping the benefits of a merger or acquisition is a notoriously tricky business. Outcomes are uncertain, previously unknown or unimportant facts suddenly emerge as critical, and there are many moving parts to control. On top of all this, the business must continue to serve clients, run operations and execute in the face of major, often disruptive, integration activity.
