Reorganizations can be a useful management tool for finding new value and are often essential as part of a merger or acquisition integration. Getting this type of reorganization right allows business units from the merging companies to be brought together smoothly, corporate activities to be standardized and streamlined, people to be aligned behind desired outcomes, and integration synergies to be delivered quickly. To help maximize the value and minimize the misery of reorgs, we have developed a five-step process for running them. The steps apply to all reorgs generally and our survey data shows that companies using this process are three times likelier than others to achieve their desired results. In this article we will show specifically how they apply to M&A-driven reorgs.
