The landscape of companies is a volatile given: companies merge, acuiqre, become acquired...
The goal of doing this is most of the time a financial issue.
But mergers and acquisitions of companies in different contents are not always easy because of
- Difference in maturity
- Difference in knowledge
- Difference in proceses
- Difference in cultures
- Difference in goals
- Resistance in sharing knowledge (because knowledge is power)
Knowledge management helps to make a merger and acquisition a success, to really blend the best of different worlds, to make from different teams one winning team.
The team that wins.
