Another Way:  Holistic Acquisitive Growth – Integration That Begins With the End in Mind

IN THE FIRST post of this series on Acquisitive Growth (Acquisitive Growth:  Structuring Acquisition Integration To Capture Business Value, Part 1), we overviewed an alternative approach to acquisition integration that sets up companies to capture more business value from their deals than the traditional approach.  The alternative approach directly addresses many of the shortcomings of the traditional approach to Post Merger Integration (PMI) – and is designed to align integration efforts for success.  It works because it explicitly surfaces many of the assumptions leaders make about their deal early in the integration process, and overtly closes gaps and addresses uncertainties that can creep into the process after the closing takes place.
