What is Organizational Culture? And does it matter in Mergers & Acquisitions – Webcast

  • RECORDED: 15 November 2018



    Today’s global M&A environment is fast paced and complex. Investors have unprecedented access to capital, pushing up valuations. Winning bidders in this market are driven to optimistic operating assumptions, leaving little room for error. And shrewd dealmakers uncover in diligence what on the surface appear to be non-financial risks, like cultural misalignment, and are willing to walk away.

    This year, we gauged the pulse of 1,438 voices who told us culture, left to chance, will derail operational performance. Our researchers went deep inside these organizations to talk with employees, business leaders, HR professionals and M&A advisors about their experiences; we also considered how different age groups, geographic locations, industries, and company sizes influenced people’s views on culture.

    Culture is about the operating environment. It crystalizes what you do. Culture defines and allows you to effectively CHANGE YOUR BUSINESS STRATEGIES and it CAN PROVIDE A PLATFORM TO ATTRACT AND ENGAGE the right TALENT.
