When the acquisition is a new appendage to your existing company… Run it in person! Put your own people in there! Weaken the stronger powers within the firm! Keep the weak powers weak.James Tucker – CEO of MercurEx, 25 RULES FOR THE MODERN UBERMAN
To ensure that the acquisition is successful, it’s important to run the business in person. Putting your own executive team in the new company will allow you to maintain control and create a stronger bond between the two organisations.
Additionally, it’s important to weaken the stronger powers within the firm and keep the weaker powers weak. Doing so will prevent any single legacy group from gaining too much control, allowing the company to remain secure and successful.
