  • Authors:

  • Publication Date:
    June 1999
  • Report Number:

Interviews with senior executives and an examination of leading research on post-merger integration reveal that successful organizational integration requires:

  • execution of design fundamentals;
  • senior corporate executive leadership;
  • a framework of guiding principles;
  • a formal merger management structure;
  • a careful merger management process; and
  • well-planned long-range activities.

Merger profiles from Baxter International, Chase Manhattan, Kraft Foods, and SmithKline Beecham provide examples of what works.
