Mergers & Acquisitions Guidance
Your next merger or acquisition is going to fail, because ...
statistically speaking it's already written!
So what can you do instead?
If you don’t know it yet, you will love this statistic:
At the world scale, it is estimated that 70 % of all mergers and acquisitions fail to fulfill their purpose!
And the purpose is generally about… making more money.
70% is the optimistic version, a more pessimistic one is about 90%, according to Harvard Business Review report.
Said in another way, you have between 7 to 9 chances out of 10 to make one of your most costly business decision in your professional life.
You can prevent yourself from mistakes by hiring the most expensive law firm on the planet. There are a few ones. I even had friends working in some of them. That’s the number one solution that most business leaders go for. And that’s not the one you really need!!!
Think about it, if companies from the Fortune 500, with unlimited resources – compared to regular small-medium companies- failed, then what are the chances you fail?
A lot of companies – because it’s trendy- say that their people are their most valuable asset and it’s true.
BUT… they don’t really care about their people during the merger/acquisition process.
Keep in mind this: according to a study from AON/HEWETT, there is a 23% increase in “actively disengaged employees” after a change event – even if no one’s job is affected and it takes about three years to return to pre-merger engagement levels.
So, I'm not a lawyer and don’t have all the answers and solutions to mergers & acquisitions issues.
However, when it comes to decision-making about people, organization, leadership, and communication,
my human capital expertise will prevent you from costly mistakes.
Improve your merger / acquisition success chances today!
