Healthy mergers are commonly hindered by easily avoidable mistakes: poorly-defined strategic fit, under-resourcing of the integration team and lack of attention from senior management during the integration process.
In this essential new book, the authors recognize the importance of a strong managerial discipline and extensive integration experience in counteracting these problems. This book offers fresh, practical ideas about the role of CEOs and senior management in post-merger integration, and suggests innovative, realistic approaches to accomplish strong post-merger success.

Editorial Reviews

"Mergers is a refreshing glimpse into the classic dilemma of making acquisitions that actually work. By shifting the spotlight from integration teams to executive leadership, the authors sketch a smart and yet unexpected playbook of the 5 essential actions that only senior executives can take. A 'must read' for executives at both buyers and sellers." -- Kathleen M. Eisenhardt,  Stanford University, Co-author, Competing on the Edge: Strategy as Structured Chaos"Mergers is not just for those who are contemplating mergers and acquisitions.  There is much in the book that is of value to any business leader looking to improve corporate health.  It contains simple but powerful truths about communications, management structure and customer care that we all need to apply." --John Varley, Barclays Bank PLC  "The authors have combined their professional experience, advising leading CEOs, with a detailed academic understanding of the issues surrounding mergers to produce a provocative guide on how CEOs can move their companies to a higher level of performance through an expansive view of merger integration.  It is an approach CEOs will have to emulate as the merger game gets tougher and more expensive and the payback ever more elusive." --Larry Glasscock, CEO of Wellpoint
