Post -Merger Integration
Merged companies must meet their planned financial
objectives; it is estimated that 80% of mergers fail to meet planned
financial goals. Ranger Partners quickly drives merging partners through the
difficult post-merger integration so they can focus on achieving business
results. Even when the two organizations are a strong complement the forced
pairing causes individuals to focus on their own situation, not integration.
The often seen "we versus they" scenario can exist for years.
Speed and decisiveness is key; the longer the integration takes the greater
the chances of disappointment. We show executives how to address issues with
speed, but with finesse. We've successfully bought, merged and integrated
companies and understand the pressures involved.
We carefully assess culture, which is the collective
personalities and history of the employees. Culture can also be defined as
values, beliefs, and norms of how people behave. It is a mistake to assume
that employees will naturally meld cultures together. We help key executives
understand the leadership challenges they face, what they should expect, and
what behaviors they need to exhibit. How to re-recruit key employees so they
won't jump ship, setting up and facilitating communication focus groups,
creating merger integration teams, and facilitating off-site retreats to
design a new culture are several of our techniques.
