TREATING M&A LIKE A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE
Aug 19, 2020

In this episode, our guest is Norman Wolfe, founder and CEO of Quantum Leaders, a 15 year veteran of Hewlett Packard and author of The Living Organization, an application of the core principles of how the world works and how organisations can create extraordinary impact.

Norman's view is that most M&A fail because they are treated transactionally, and while that's a necessary baseline, successful acquisitions must be treated like a good marriage where relationship and context are key factors that bring about a transformation of the core paradigm of business.

A fascinating story and some valuable cause for thought especially as acquisitions resume post COVID-19.
