In acquisitions, both sellers and buyers spend great effort in financial and operational due diligence, yet far too many transactions fail. Why?

Leadership and culture are critical to a successful acquisition, but frequently they’re ignored.

For buyers, leadership and culture play a critical role in ensuring a smooth post-transaction integration.
