If you want to grow your business, you will have to either ‘build’ or ‘buy’. This is the big conundrum for any CEO, large or small: do you always have the time and resources to build yourself, and will your company always be more efficient for building as opposed to buying?
For most people, the answer is no. And that is why M&A (Mergers and Acquisitions) are so popular at every level. Few to none have the time or knowledge to build themselves, so many companies are buying - and it’s a trend that is only going to accelerate. However, with estimated failure rates in M&A typically sitting between 60% and 80%, up to 70-90% of any and all M&A deals do not create any value.
In the game: Change to Successful M&A, you are the new Head of M&A with the role of a change manager in the company entering a new 'growing by buying' strategy. While you simulate the M&A change, you will consider how to implement the M&A strategy, how to communicate the change, and how to give people in the organization ownership in the process, and you will prepare to deal with real-life M&A planning and deals.
