Most mergers and acquisitions fail to deliver their expected outcomes, yet they remain essential for growing world-class companies. It follows that those handling M&As must draw on all the tools at their disposal to improve their chances of success. Applying the techniques of business intelligence can help managers to beat the odds.
Intelligent M&A looks at the full process of a merger or acquisition from start to finish, and identifies areas where business intelligence can improve the odds of a favourable outcome. Using techniques developed by governmental intelligence services and a wide range of case studies, quotations and anecdotes, the expert authors show how to build success into every phase of the deal.
