From David Burnie’s company blog, a handy post-merger integration checklist with lessons and examples from real integrations.
While each post-merger integration (PMI) is different, many elements are consistent no matter the size or nature of the transaction. Checklists can guide your integration whether you are executing your first integration or face multiple integrations per year. In addition, they can help your organization to ensure everyone knows what to do for each workstream and stage of the integration to ensure you don’t miss anything in the planning process.
