Our July 2022 Case Study asks the question, “How does a global business – Edwina (Ed) Pike refers to them as “the Mother Ship” – acquire a 50-employee startup and grow them into a successful part of the enterprise without eating them up?”
There are advantages to both the Mother Ship and the startup if the change management strategy is successful.
And as anyone who has ever worked in the world of mergers and acquisitions knows, bigger organizations consume the smaller ones that they acquire on a daily basis.
Being able to successfully deliver on the promised benefits of such an acquisition is an accomplishment any change management practitioner or change leader would be proud of.
If you know Ed, you know she is an innovator, so put your thinking caps on for this one!
