Bring two organisations together and create a single entity that performs at the highest level.
Mergers and acquisitions often fail to reach their full potential. When leadership, culture, ways of working or systems remain unaligned, the default is either to avoid the issues and hope they go away, or work around them. This results in siloed working at best, conflict and attrition of talent at worst. Poor performance and return on investment with a fragmented workforce are other likely side-effects.
The opportunity is not simply to integrate the best of both cultures, but create a brand new one designed to meet marketplace challenges as one organisation. Our programmes identify flexible ways of working that fully reflect this new combined DNA – empowering you to outmanoeuvre the competition in all geographies through agility of mindset, levels of ownership, innovation and efficiency.
“This deal needs to increase our market share and profits – so we need to deliver great performance and fast”
“They used to be our competitor, now they’re joining us – how will it work?”
“Our systems don’t talk to each other”
“We need to retain and empower our talent throughout this merger/acquisition”
“The people we acquire will need to get to know our culture and become part of it”
“We need leadership alignment to make this work”
“Our organisation’s identity will be changing. So we need to design what that will look like – and buy in”
We work with you to create a new organisation of high possibility, collaboration and strong identity. We respect and preserve what works – and we transform what doesn’t – bringing systems and ways of working together. Through an empowering, collaborative culture that delivers breakthrough results, we create a unified, high-performing organisation. Fast.

We identify the teams and leaders that can change the game. Then we develop them in Breakthrough Thinking, enabling them to share the same language and vision to work together towards a shared future. As change agents in your business, they can then deliver projects with tangible, lasting impact – engaging your people in a new, joined-up culture that lets go of the old and embraces the new.
