Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...more sound advice on topics ranging from designing a communication plan to using 'golden handcuffs' ... is a usable blueprint for practitioners going through a merger for the first time, and a set of useful checklists for Y & A addicts."
Steven Bates, MD, JP Morgan Fleming Asset Management - Human Resources, March 2002

"For line managers and HR specialists with an interest in M&As the book provides real practical guidance to getting on to the front foot for the key first 100 days. There is a real understanding of the critical success factors and potential pitfalls throughout the M&A process, particularly the leadership, organizational, social and cultural issues."
Mike Pemberton, Group HR Director, CGNU plc
