It stands to reason that leaders of growth-oriented organizations will aim to get better at the things that improve the experiences people have during M&A transactions, given that deal objectives are up to twenty three times more likely to be met when people have a positive experience than when their experience is negative.
Isely Associates’ approach to this critical work is based on our latest research. Three M&A Fundamentals – Clarity, Capability and Execution – are significantly associated with both achieving expected deal outcomes and creating a deal culture that fosters positive people experiences. M&A Leadership, like Clarity, a predictor of people experience, links these. And as we have learned, Culture touches everything.
