M&A Integration - a new book written by Cranfield alumnus, Danny Davis
Danny A. Davis (MBA 2000), is a partner with DD Consulting. He is a guest speaker at a number of the world’s top business schools on strategy and M&A. His book ‘M&A Integration – How to do it. Planning and delivering for Business Success’ has just been published by Wiley.
In the world of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) much emphasis is put on the identification of targets and the closing of the deal. Integration and consolidation are issues that are often not addressed early enough, if at all.
Organisations put much effort into thinking strategically about what they will buy and why, but the thinking often doesn’t flow through into the task of planning how the actual integration will take place. This phase is, however, critical to success. Figures show that 80% of mergers fail. The reasons for this are complex and varied, but failure to pay proper attention to the integration process is often a key factor.
In this book Danny takes the reader through the deal process, integration planning and final delivery. The chapters include tools and checklists that will prove invaluable in delivering the changes and improvements needed whilst planning.
