A leadership blueprint for managing cross-cultural issues in any M&A deal

In our rapidly expanding and increasingly volatile global economy, mergers and acquisitions are becoming the strategy of choice for businesses seeking to stimulate growth while managing risk. As more and more M&A deals are struck between global organizations, difficult new issues involving cultural differences have arisen.

In The Global M&A Tango, international managementexperts Fons Trompenaars and Maarten Nijhoff Asser explain how to detect and manage these issues before they become major problems.

Drawing on the world-renowned Trompenaars Hampden-Turner Cross-Cultural Database and Culture Compass, the authors illustrate how widely cultures can differ and, by reconciling the dilemmas created by that difference, howthey can be integrated quickly, efficiently, and effectively.

The Global M&A Tango helps you meet all thechallenges of cross-national M&A by:
