The Role of Change in Mergers and Acquisitions
Experience an M&A through the lens of change!
Have you been involved with an acquisition? A divestiture? Have you supported a deal as an OD practitioner or HR Business Partner? No matter how you have experienced a transaction, they can be messy. They are fast paced change efforts that simultaneously create excitement and anxiety for employees; not to mention for the OD and HR professionals supporting them. The lack of a robust change plan can leave companies vulnerable to loss of talent, cultural clashes and ineffective integration planning and implementation. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way! Join facilitator, Lynette Buitt, to walk through a simulated acquisition through the lens of a change process.
