The authors start with the genesis of your strategy and the statutory framework, before the partner company has been identified then move on to each of the stages of negotiation, merger announcement, pre-merger preparation, and in the critical first 100 days, following the merger. The book includes chapters exploring the process of developing the employer brand for the new entity as well as of measuring and building on the success of your strategy and is illustrated throughout by a range of case studies.This title is suitable for Management and Business Studies: Acquisitions, Mergers and Buyouts- Personnel Management and HRM- Missions and Visioning- and, Internal Communication.
