The "X Factor" in Merger Success and Failure by Pritchett
A great white paper offered by Pritchett. Over 130 executives across the United States took time out of their busy schedules to participate in this study.
The core question driving this research project is whether or not culture deserves serious consideration in the context of mergers and acquisitions. Does it count for much? Is it even a helpful concept? After all, the term “corporate culture” was not even part of the business vocabulary until the mid-1980s. This paper discusses these concepts and more.
