This paper looks at the combination of knowledge boundaries and M&A Integration because, as the authors note, when you are dealing with something which is as personal and as valuable as knowledge, you have to overcome some sort of barriers. This is true for the co-ordination and integration between organisations after an acquisition, but also between business units within a company.
