If you have ever participated in a merger, you know the difference between heaven and hell. Unfortunately, about 75% of M&A activity in North America fails. How to shift the results to a better outcome? Mark Feldman and Michael Spratt from PriceWaterhouseCoopers have produced an interesting book on how to avoid a negative outcome. Its a fun read, doesn’t pull any punches and delivers a no-nonsense approach to getting the job done. The advice provided can be used to solve current operational issues or speed up new product development. Not written in consultant-speak, but plain ordinary english. A great little tool to have in your library!
