Successful post-merger integration (PMI) by experienced managers

Post Merger Integration

Post-merger integration is the merging of two previously separate companies. In the process, process flows have to be restructured and redefined by managers, which is a real challenge. Compared to other leadership tasks, it offers the full range of possible construction sites under the intensified condition of time pressure and requires considerable change management expertise.

Preventing psychological aspects of post-merger integration “Merger Syndrome”

The announcement of a corporate acquisition comes with a big shock in many companies. The psychological effects are also referred to as “merger syndrome”. Conveying credibility and mutual respect are central tasks of change management to overcome the “merger syndrome”, so that customers and one’s own business do not suffer in any way from the consequences of the merger to the advantage of the competition.

  • Fostering a cross-company network of relationships and information through joint events and project work.
