Why Corporate Culture is the Most Overlooked Factor in Merger Success
Featuring Garry Ridge, Chairman & CEO, WD-40 Company & Denise Hummel, CEO, Lead Inclusively
In M&A deals, alignment of corporate cultures facilitates post-close integration. Unfortunately, deals often don’t live up to expectations because of cultural differences. While everyone focuses on increasing market share, introducing new products, or expanding into new markets, one factor is usually overlooked - the human factor. Learn about culture integration in M&A from two nationally known CEOs who have lived through several deals as they discuss what’s at risk, where to start, how to communicate and foster a connection with employees, how to highlight cultural similarities, and how to create collaboration, enhanced performance, and innovation.
