    Posted by John Garrity on Mar 30, 2020 2:59:51 PM

    As someone who has now officially worked at home for all of one week, I am by no means an expert when it comes to working from home. Personally, I much prefer the energy and excitement of being in the office and interacting in person with our team and clients. That said, in preparation for my switch from the office to home, I did quite of bit of research and planning to ensure that I could maintain a high level of efficiency and effectiveness even from my remote workspace. Here are some tips that I have found helpful.

    The Importance of Post-Acquisition Integration

    Posted by Doug Meyer on Mar 4, 2020 10:29:12 AM

    The adrenaline rush you get when closing on an acquisition (or merger) is exhilarating.

    Excitement builds as you make the formal announcement to the team and send the press release. The congratulations start pouring in and all the endorphins rush in. If only this were the punctuation at the end of the sentence. It’s more like a new chapter that is yet to be written.

    Enjoy your post close rush, but know that success is in what follows, not the successful completion of the acquisition.

    Often, business leaders are not prepared for this next phase in the transaction, which happens to be the most difficult.  Integration, or as we prefer to say, unification, is the next and most important phase. Closing the deal is now a success that lives in the past and future success is properly unifying the teams and driving the intended benefits.
