Abstract

Looks at how senior management teams and CEOs fall into the trap of thinking that their work is complete, following negotiated deals. Divides M&A into three phases — pre‐combination, combination and post‐combination and distinguishes between typical and successful combinations in terms of those phases (uses a table for highlighting this). Pinpoints, in a panel, Boeing's acquisitions of North American Rockwell — using transition teams, communication and guidelines, as explanatory reasons for this takeover.
