What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“For scholars wanting to understand organisational learning, especially in the context of corporate acquisitions, Ilaria Galavotti has written an outstanding comprehensive guide that spans strategic decision-making and learning literatures to examine acquisition value creation as part of corporate strategy. She nicely details the literatures of acquisition experience and acquisition learning, which includes methodological approaches. Accordingly, her book becomes a ‘must read’ for scholars wanting to fully understand research in this important area.” (Jerayr John Haleblian, Associate Professor, University of California-Riverside, and Adjunct Associate Professor, University of Georgia, USA)

“Ilaria Galavotti offers us an eloquent review—and remarkably erudite interpretation—of the burgeoning literature on learning in the context of acquisitions. Replete with theoretical insights, interdisciplinary connections, and philosophical considerations, one is hard-pressed to imagine a more fruitful exposition of this topic. An impressive accomplishment.” (Mario Schijven, Assistant Professor of Business Administration, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA)
