Why do so many sensible M&A deals fail in the execution and integration phase?

How can leaders deliver on their commitments, not only in the short term, but in all financial, human and societal aspects?

Built on the foundations of systemic intelligence and organizational constellations, and illustrated with numerous real-life stories, EMERGENT sheds a light on what is really derailing the newly formed organization.

With their thought-provoking questions, the authors dare you to explore both the system and your relationship to it. While reading, you will find yourself reflecting on your own contribution to the challenges in front of you.

This book is a ground-breaking guide for leaders, consultants and facilitators who are eager to stop fighting symptoms and address the real underlying causes.
