This book offers today's most complete and practical framework for implementing and managing domestic and international mergers and acquisitions that deliver maximum business value. Author Yaakov Weber, an international expert in M&A management, strategic alliances, and strategic management, focuses on the critical success factors across every stage of the process, including planning, screening, negotiation, due diligence, transition management structures, post-merger integration, leadership and trust, cultural integration, human resource practices, control, monitoring, and more. Replete with current examples and cases, Weber's unique interdisciplinary approach thoroughly addresses both operational and cultural requirements, supporting participants no matter what their role. Unlike other books that are too academic, or are limited to a specific stage of the process, Weber pays special attention to crucial strategic and behavioral linkages between pre- and post-merger stages, explaining why they are so important and how they can be managed to create maximum value. Throughout, Weber provides practical tools, tables, and figures that can help M&A implementers ensure best performance and achieve success where others have failed.
