If your company is in a continue acquisition process, you will be facing the integrations of multiple targets with different culture in different stage, different integration strategy, delivery different synergies into one company – sometimes you need think about combine them, such as consolidate offices from different targets in a same city. Can anyone share your experience how did you handle this situation? Any best practices?
A successful approach was established by Australian engineering firm Worley with their repeated acquisitions that they were performing. In order to manage the integrations properly, Worley setup an Integration Management Office (IMO) reporting directly to the board. This proved to be fundamental in achieving their post-merger synergy goals.
