Merger Excellence - Enabling Mergers that Work from the Start

People integration is critical to success in any change management process. Mergers and Acquisitions differ from “normal” change processes in that their very nature requires that a new corporate identity and cultural integration are established for the two entities. Our 7 Step Top Down – Bottom Up Organizational Change Process enables alignment between the leaders’ with the executive team’s vision and the total system activities. The process is based on the fundamentals of Organization Development, Systemics, Collaborative Change Management and is at the forefront of current research for successful mergers. The Readiness Training Program and the Collaborative Leadership Training reflect the elements of our proprietary process.

Auxilium Expatbiz Services deals with the issues surrounding change and leadership development in transatlantic projects with a holistic, systemic and integrated approach. Our particular passion is assisting leaders and organizations learn how to navigate the waters of merging businesses, departments and teams while ensuring that they continue to grow and sustain vibrant and united organizations.

Nearly 80% of all mergers fail due to an inability to combine cultures and visions, resulting in internal conflict and political in-fighting. Mergers and Acquisitions often create winners and losers at both the corporate level and for individual staff. One culture unseats another. This is amplified when the entities merging are from different continents. One employee outweighs another. Power struggles prevail. While policy and organizational decisions are made from above, the organization waits... It sits in limbo and disengages from its focus.

Our Merger Readiness Program assists in traversing through this terrain, while creating rapid and successful mergers. How people engagement takes place is the key to success. Our approach engages corporate cultures in a near-fluid process of creating meaningful, value-driven focus and corporate loyalty from the onset. Leadership style, timing and a collaborative implementation approach fostering employee participation tip the scales between enabling engagement versus disengagement across cultures, thereby establishing the requisite new corporate identity, focus, loyalty and purpose.
