Have you ever been merged, acquired, divested, split, or spun-off? Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity from coffee room rumors to the final deal execution creates organization chaos and major disruptions. Fear, uncertainty, lack of communications grip organizations and people. However, we all have muddled through these titanic changes and managed to survive.

While all departments within the organization struggle with the pending changes, none is affected more than Information Technology department. Little thought is given to the impact on the technical infrastructure or changes to the application systems during the due diligence analysis prior to the closing of the deal. Yet the IT infrastructure and application architecture are the enablers that stabilizes the new entity and restores normalcy to the organization.  

Join us as we investigate organization change approaches, IT strategies, and the strategies for the restoration of the super-user communities following an M&A disruption.
