Proper IT due diligence
When considering a merger, it is important to focus on information systems and management. The costs for IT restructuring may be too high in some cases when companies depend heavily upon their technology infrastructure-this could lead them away from the business case or even undo an entire post-merger integration entirely!
With today’s reliance upon these aspects of running any kind enterprise successfully there's no exception made without careful preplanning that takes into consideration all regulations defined by law across borders including specific rules surrounding data privacy issues like how long user records remain accessible following closure/merger etcetera so they're not compromised later down road.
Directly link the synergies to KPIs
When two companies come together, it's not always easy to know what will happen. Sometimes the best synergies are when both sides work towards a shared goal and do so with an open mind because you never know how things might turn out until they try!
Setting clear strategic decisions from day one can help ensure that your merger or acquisition goes smoothly by allowing for natural coordination between parties who have different interests but still want success overall- which means there'll be no future surprises.
Implement digital transformation
The integration of two companies is not always an easy process. When the infrastructures, processes and applications are not yet aligned it can create issues for successful digital transformations that depend on strategic decisions to be made between both parties involved in this type merger or acquisition depending if they have different ambitions with regards towards their company's future growth potentials which will then affect what kind (or level)of partnership might work out best before you even start integrating your workforce' s skill sets together- making sure everything aligns properly along all axes so everyone has access & opportunity at hand.
IT Modernization is hard work; it's also an ongoing project. You can never be fully modernized because people, processes and technology are always changing! But a PMI can provide you with the opportunity to use momentum in aligning them better than ever before.
Ingrain a successful change management
Communication and sharing of information is a key component in change management. It's important for project leaders to understand their responsibility, as well as that of those they are leading with throughout the process-from planning out what needs doing on both sides before anything begins (including reaching an agreement about who will take over certain jobs if need be) all through post-merger integration efforts like training employees or setting up systems between companies so things keep running smoothly without any unnecessary confusion along the way!
To successfully integrate two organizations with their people and cultures while effectively communicating throughout the process takes strong communication skills from top executives such as those in charge-of leading integration efforts within acquired companies or splitting up tasks among different departments helps too.
Ensure clear principles to follow
If you want to avoid the pitfalls of over-priced, under-performing solutions that don't provide value for your transformation then it's important not only do you have clear principles in place but also make sure these guidelines are communicated throughout all parties involved.
A principle is something fundamental - like a rule or law-which functions as guidance when integrating different elements together; they're key during alignment meetings between executives from various departments/functions within one company who need clarity on what will work best with their workflow processes before starting any new projects.
