AcquisitionWorks is dedicated to improving the financial returns on the investments made in merged and acquired companies. 

By refocusing and aligning the newly acquired organization on the strategic objectives of the acquisition, we will enhance and accelerate the value they bring to your customers, improving your competitive edge.  We provide structured programs, processes and tools that will strengthen the commitment of the workforce to these goals.  Our focused efforts will accelerate the achievement of your strategic objectives and in the process, improve the retention of employees, renew employee productivity, fully leverage the synergies between the two organizations, and improve the revenues of your combined business.

ThirdWave IntegrationTM.  First comes the Shockwave, then the Organizational Integration but what of the integration of the strategies of the acquired unit with the parent?  What does it take to develop the growth synergy intended when the acquisition was done?  How do you get the acquired employees to embrace the new strategic possibilities and own responsibility for them?  Read Jonathan Lane’s white paper on ThirdWave IntegrationTM.
