The combination of two distinct corporate cultures is often viewed as one of the ‘softer’ elements to consider during PMI planning and execution, but research has shown that it’s a key component to long-term success. Each company has a unique value set, personality, and organizational hierarchy, and certain aspects need to be retained – from both sides – in order to ensure long term productivity. Even modest differences in each company’s beliefs and behaviors can lead to a culture clash that undermines the unification effort. It’s worthwhile to invest in a mapping exercise early in the process to better understand cultural differences, share the data with a group of key stakeholders, and then engage with constituents from both sides to bridge the gaps.
