Many deals have compelling strategic rationales but fail to achieve their expected value because of flawed implementation. Owners and investors develop a clear vision for a transaction, but the business falls short of targeted synergies. Acquisition/merger integration is among the most difficult forms of business change to achieve, because the operational challenges get compounded by organizational and cultural differences. Having a structured process helps but is not sufficient by itself. A successful deal requires experienced, hands-on support for full and rapid integration.
