International Mergers & Acquisitions; What are the Cultural Implications?
What this podcast will be about:

Most M&A’s are based on economical decisions:
- Economies of scale
- Reduced workforce (= fewer expenses)
- Faster & more innovation
The majority of (international) mergers & acquisitions fail. Most often because there is a mismatch between the national cultures involved and/or the differences of the organizational cultures involved.
This goes for international M&A’s but also for national M&A’s and even for multinational companies that attempting an internal reorganization, merging different departments (on different locations)
