Maybe the biggest challenge after a merger or acquisition is to successfully integrate all corporate cultures. Some companies think they can’t live together while others integrate flawlessly. Understanding culture, and proactively managing it, is critical to a successful integration.
For the cultures of different organisations to merge successfully, you must first understand what these cultures are and gain insight into the underlying drives at the individual, team and organisational level. To change behaviour, you need to understand what the current behaviour is, what it fuels, and what changes you would like to make to achieve specific goals.
Merging cultures and changing behaviour based on a deep understanding of the motivations of individuals, teams, and organisations. This allows you to develop long-term strategies to achieve your objectives.
