The Integration Organization

How do you structure the governance of an acquisition integration and appoint the right people for the job?

This course is part of the Certified Acquisition Integration Manager program 

In this course we look at the teams that oversee, manage and deliver an acquisition integration. You will understand about the hierarchy and roles of the Steering Committee, Integration Management Office (IMO), Onboarding Team, and workstreams. We also look at the members of these teams: what are the various roles, qualifications and qualities of the ideal candidates for these positions.

If you don't put the correct people in the correct roles, you decrease the odds of integration success

The Integration Organization addresses the following questions

  • What is a typical governance for an acquisition integration?
  • What are the ideal qualifications and qualities of the people who should be part of the integration organization?
  • What workstreams should you use?
  • How many workstreams should there be?

This course includes materials for download.

The Results are There

Intista were really helpful in strategic planning and finding solutions. We had positive results that helped the company and employees move forward. They were definitely worth the time. The results are there, and motivation is part of the process.

Made for a Better Culture

Able to assume solutions many times before problems occur and can remain collected. …also quickly made personal relationships with members of both companies and helped to integrate them by learning process and introducing counterparts. It not only made for a better culture, but a smoother run in streamlining both lines of business.

Holistic Thinking

Really appreciate your dedication, professionalism, hard work and holistic thinking.

Value Beyond the Scope

They were very responsive to my needs and gave added value beyond the scope I requested, finding gaps that we didn't realize were there. The attitude, support and professionalism were outstanding. We would have no hesitation in asking them back for future projects.

Strongly Recommended

We [were] dealing with a big integration project between a China and a Europe based company.

A great experience... [the] contribution to our email migration project is highly appreciated, excellent communication and coordination skills are highly praised.

Definitely Steve and his company will be strongly recommended to our partners. I would say that if we have any chance doing the project based in USA and Europe, they will be on the preferred vendor list for sure.

A Huge Positive Difference

Extremely organized, detail-oriented, thorough, timely, and importantly... made a huge positive difference on many occasions, helping to gain loyalty, bridge differences, and get newly acquired companies up and running
