Mergers and Acquisitions – Culture by Default or by Design?

Of the many strategic decisions a leadership team makes, mergers and acquisitions are among the most difficult – and important.

And, just like frustrated parents, leaders often respond by “getting tough” – demanding more collaboration, greater commitment, and increased effort.
