This book calls for a new approach to M&A. It’s an invitation to confront the unacknowledged questions that so often cripple M&A success. What is the M&A an excuse for? How do we mourn what is lost? Through their questions, Mieke and Paul surface what lies unspoken beneath every system. They name the huge identity shift M&A so often entails. This is a powerful guide to thinking more broadly and deeply about successful integration. Through it, the authors help us begin to identify and understand the constellations in our own organizations.
