SUCCESSFUL CROSS BORDER M&A – DEVELOPING INTERCULTURAL COMPETENCE – “How to manage the Culture factor”. Research is showing that unrecognized cultural issues are getting in the way of fast and effective acquisitions and integration, in the words of Peter Drucker “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”. Bridging cultural gaps is critical to the sourcing, courting, due diligence, negotiation and eventual acquisition integration process and if done correctly will lead to a transaction to which more employees are more committed and hence result in a richer business plan.
