049: Three Drivers to Make M&A Integration Successful with Branka Dessens

49,600 M&A deals failed last year. 

Here’s the logic: According to Pwc, we hit a new record of M&A deals globally in 2021: 62,000. But according to many experts, the average failure rate is 80%. 

If this is true, it’s too easy to fail.

But it’s never about strategy, commercial, or finance alone. It’s also about people.

In this episode, I invited Branka Dessens, Post M&A Advisor, and together we discussed:

  1. Why and how to assess culture before making any deal
  2. The importance of choosing the right level of integration
  3. The typical mistakes of the execution phase
