Project #46867 - Human Resources Mgmt: Fundamental Factors to Consider During Due Diligence

One leading paper noted that the key question is “are we willing to fit” not “do we fit” (Gaertner, Mann, Murrell, & Dovidio,1989). To better understand this difference in statements, imagine for a moment that you are going on a long vacation. You and your family and/or friends are all riding together. Each of you has a suitcase as well as various other personal items. Chances are, the first time you begin to place these items into the trunk of your car, all the pieces that you wish to bring are not going to fit. It is then that you have two options. One, you can decide that it is not worth the effort to make the pieces fit and forgo your plan of riding together. Or two, you can collaborate with others to eliminate unnecessary pieces and strategically rearrange the rest until they all fit together as one. When conducting due diligence on the fundamental factors, HR’s role is to figure out whether or not the target organization is worth enough value to necessitate rearranging.

One way to determine whether or not a target is worth molding into your current company is to conduct due diligence on the target’s fundamental factors of: people, philosophies, policies, processes, structures and systems. Learning about an organization’s fundamental factors can help dictate the amount of work needed to integrate the target into the existing core of your organization. Ultimately, this research will help you determine whether or not the target is worth synergy efforts.

Evaluate the people, philosophies, policies, processes, structures and systems that make up organizations. Before you start, be sure to review all reading resources, focusing on the depth of how these (policies, procedures, and practices) are investigated during the due diligence phase.

Write a cohesive and scholarly response based on your readings and research that addresses the following:

·         Evaluate the people, philosophies, policies, processes, structures and systems that make up organizations.

·         Rank the order of the fundamental factors (greatest importance to least importance) from what you believe to be the most crucial factor in conducting due diligence before an M&A.  

·         State your rationale and justify your rankings using real-world M&A successes and/or failures as evidence.

·         Identify which factor seems to be overlooked during M&As. Support your answer by citing an M&A merger that failed to conduct due diligence on this specific factor.
