Companies spend more than $2 trillion on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) every year, yet over 70 percent of these growth measures fail. In this course, professor and M&A expert Tim Galpin first explains why mergers and acquisitions occur, why they fail, and how to avoid making common mistakes. He then helps you craft your M&A strategy and outlines the eight stages of a merger. Finally, because integration is critical to M&A success, Galpin explains how to create work streams to ensure efficiency, and how you can measure whether your efforts have been successful.
