Mergers & Acquisitions Solution

In-house solution

Align the working practices of the merging companies and create a new team identity. 


Our Mergers & Acquisitions Packages can help you find not only what the differences between the two entities are, but also what is common between the two ways of working.

It is a complete package for you if you want to:

    • Know what is the culture of the company that was acquired.
    • Understand how the cultures of the two companies are different, and what kind of an impact that will have on the integration of the two.
    • Understand where you will see the synergies between the two organisations, and how those can be utilised in the process.
    • Find out how best align the working practices between the two organisations.

Our Mergers & Acquisitions Packages will help you to align the working practices of the merging companies, creating a new team identity. It will help you set your goals, and improve trust on both sides of the merger.

A 3 step approach

After the Intake interview, where we define the specifics of the transformation process and co-create the plan to carry it out, the transformation process can be divided into three steps.

Step 1: Understand the culture you currently have

We measure the current culture of your organisation through an online survey and/or interviews. Based on the needs of your organisation, the data collection can be done through a fully automated online questionnaire, or accompanied by a set of personal interviews conducted on different levels of the organisation.

Step 2: See how far your culture is from what you need 

Your consultant will guide you through the process of defining the optimal culture for your organisation based on your strategy. Your consultant will then help you identify the areas where the current culture supports your strategy, and the areas where it hinders it.

Step 3: Design the transformation path

Your consultant will walk you through your options in transforming your culture towards the culture you need. You will learn how to implement direct change, indirect change, or a combination of both. Your consultant will also help you through the process of deciding the areas you want to focus your change efforts on.

Hofstede Insights (now The Culture Factor Group) assisted us in supervising the cultural aspects of the acquisition of Japanese-based PGW. The data-driven methodology and the approach through various "global cultural workshops" by Hofstede Insights made clear where the challenges lie in the cultural integration of PGW in PI. It is a foundation that we are now working from to make the next steps and create synergies. It became clear to us that the cultural aspects of M&A processes should not be underestimated and highly ranks on the integration agenda.
