OTM Wisdom from Dallin Whitfield
“You have not finished your M&A work until you have integrated and stabilized your operating model.”
Many professionals think M&A integration work is completed when the ink on the contract dries. In reality, this is just the beginning of the work that is required to practically join together two companies. Numerous studies have shown that three years post-acquisition, only 15-35% of mergers and acquisitions ever achieve the desired synergies largely due to poor operational and cultural integration. We’re here to note how vital it is to approach the M&A process from a holistic organization design standpoint. From due diligence to implementation through stabilization, OTM’s org design solution works directly supports and enables your acquisition strategy, integration objectives, and reaching your overall transformation target.

ODN Webinar: Everything You Need to Know About Organization Design…
Organization design is a business solution that ensures a business is “fit for purpose.” It can be integrated with the art and science of Organization Development, but they are not the same. In our time together, we will review the essential yet practical elements of Organization Design and its fit with Organization Development. Many HR professionals lump these two together referring to them as OD&D particularly because at some point, Organization Design requires roles and jobs design and assigning people. This is a minor part of organization design work. While some graduate Organization Development programs touch on Organization Design, for the most part they are inadequate in preparing their students to do this important work.
