Mergers & acquisitions (M&As) continue to be a major strategy in support of corporate growth. M&A activity resurged in 2014. More than US$3 trillion in deals were announced and/or closed-at the highest levels in seven years. Yet, M&As are an inherently risky undertaking for any business. Research indicates that up to 70% of such deals fail to meet stated objectives, and of those, 50% will destroy shareholder value. What can be done to reduce risk and assure M&A success?

New, seminal research, highlighted in the September 2014 issue of Harvard Business Review, has shed light on the specific set of leadership skills to predict M&A success-for both acquirer and target companies. For the first time, this research quantified the impact of leadership on the ability for a particular M&A to succeed...or fail.

This informative and interactive session will delve into this groundbreaking research and explain why leadership capability is critical to M&As and must be explored during due diligence-although previously not considered a priority by decision makers.

What will you learn?

  • Role of leadership in successful M&As.
  • Leadership skills that predict M&A success for both acquirers and target companies, and their impact on financial performance.
  • Application of Potentious M&A Leadership Framework to due diligence
