From the Back Cover:

Merger and acquisition deals are now at an all-time high, having doubled in frequency since 1990. Done right, M&As result in unified, cohesive new organizations whose financial and strategic options are much improved. This guide gives executives, managers, and supervisors the guidance and tools they need to see an M&A successfully through at every organizational level and so more quickly realize its synergies.
Beginning with the deal itself, The Complete Guide to Mergers and Acquisitions shows managers how to minimize the impact of a merger on personnel and realize its strategic and financial benefits faster, more efficiently, and more effectively. It clearly explains the issues managers will face at each stage of the process and contains step-by-step instructions for creating a successful communications strategy, retaining and re-recruiting key talent, creating a clear selection and staffing plan, designing and managing the integration process, and measuring progress.
Designed by two veterans of dozens of successful mergers and acquisitions, this field-proven program works equally well for senior managers looking at the big picture and for line managers supervising smaller departmental integration. The authors include plenty of templates, charts, checklists, graphs, and tools that give hands-on help along the way. They also offer both best practice and worst practices from a wide variety of companies, laying out the examples to follow and the mistakes to avoid.
A sample task force charter in the back of the book, along with an integration planning template, provides concrete direction for mapping out an integration action plan that works. The Executive Summary of Watson Wyatt Worldwide's 1998/99 M&A Survey found in the appendix reinforces the best practices presented in the text.
