Overview

This book reveals the complexity of mergers and acquisitions, and explains how to master it. From doing the deal to making it work, this comprehensive book discusses every aspect of successfully growing your business through mergers and acquisitions.

Based on models of complexity, it book shows that complexity in business, as in nature, eventually falls into patterns.

The authors' own experiences with companies such as Shell, Monsanto, and Lucent are the foundation for this thorough handbook.
