How will you bring two organizations together as one?
Over 80% of mergers and acquisitions fail to achieve their forecasted value. Smart communications and a robust change management program can make the difference. United Minds maintains a customized, integrated and global team of experts to support clients through company mergers and beyond.
Stakeholder Engagement. To drive broad understanding and alignment about the integration, we help clients develop a holistic stakeholder engagement plan that includes both internal and external stakeholders, including media and analysts.
M&A Change Management. Drawing on our team of former management consultants and internal communicators, we help clients assess change readiness, drive leadership alignment, equip managers and ensure continued employee productivity throughout the transaction and the transition.
M&A Cultural Assessment. Our culture diagnostic allows us to identify cultural similarities and differences between the two companies, and potential risk areas, early on. Through culture visioning workshops, we support leadership in defining the future culture of the combined organization and measuring progress towards achieving it.
Change Champion Programs. By identifying and training a network of employee influencers, we help build support for the combined organization and its vision through bottom-up advocacy.
Corporate Identity & Branding. We support clients in defining the new entity’s vision, mission, values and brand – a critical step in introducing the new organization to stakeholders and building shared identity.
