IN THIS SUMMARY
While mergers, acquisitions, and alliances are more common than ever in today’s strategic business climate, only 25 percent of all mergers succeed. In Joining Forces, authors Mitchell Lee Marks and Philip H. Mirvis offer strategies, insight, and advice that go beyond what it takes to successfully combine organizations to create real value. This comprehensive guide uses a combination of theory, research, and practical knowledge to illustrate how to use mergers and acquisitions (M&A) to make one plus one equal three. Joining Forces offers business leaders insight into M&A from a strategy perspective, as well as from the point of view of the organization, people, and culture.
