Different Ways to Integrate

Learn about the different approaches to integration 

The task of selecting how to integrate your acquisition is not time consuming. However, it is extremely important that you understand the approaches so that you can frame what is best for your business, correctly.

This course looks at four broad-category approaches to integrating an acquired small or mid-size business, along with the “Keep Separate” strategy (an approach where no integration takes place). We will describe how each works, its advantage and how to succeed when using it.

Different Ways to Integrate covers the following topics

  • An overview and comparison of the different ways to integrate
  • The consolidation approach
  • The benefits of leaving an acquisition autonomous
  • Should you wait before starting an integration?
  • Rolling up multiple acquisitions with one integration program
  • How to tackle an integration of two mismatched businesses
  • How to integrate a business you intended to keep separate
The smallest integrations can involve hundreds of tasks or projects 
How you to create these projects is critical to the successful management of this busy time

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.

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.
