Important for a successful integration is the identification of key functions and their leaders and personalities. They must “swear in” the new team to the common vision/mission and its common goals/values, as well as ensure communication during the integration and its progress. This is the only way to overcome the, often large, cultural differences.
The primary goal must be to quickly hand over operational responsibility to the new management in order to achieve the smoothest possible transition to day-to-day operations.
