09:00 Proactive Approach to Mergers and Acquisitions to Ensure Change Readiness and Increase Transaction Success

With Mergers and Acquisitions saturating the pharma industry, it is critical to strategize and apply a change management plan which takes into account multiple stakeholders and internal teams who will be affected by that change directly—their capacity for change, their response to changes made, and MnAs overall impact on achieving organizational goals.

What You Will Learn:

  • Determine the less obvious differentiators between two companies involved in an MnA and what they will mean to the organization as a whole
  • Look at cultural issues which will inhibit change management in a merger
  • Approach qualitative and quantitative research to measure change engagement and effectiveness


How You Will Benefit:

  • Take an in-depth look at how MnAs will affect your organization as a whole and the opportunities for HR impact
  • Develop surveying materials which measure reaction to complex changes and the effect on deal value
  • Apply metrics to determine weak links in change management
