Project #49750 - HR Mgmt: Big Bang Versus Step-by-Step Change

Integrating two organizations into one cohesive unit can be one of the most challenging and important aspects to undertake post M&A. As you have seen throughout the atached Resources, much research has been synthesized to identify the best strategies for implementing change. What happens, however, when even the experts are split in their opinions on the rate at which organizations should make integration changes? If 50% recommend making changes quickly and all at once, and 50% believe it is best to go slowly and incrementally, how can you determine which is best for your organization?

When the big bang method is used, organizational decisions occur rapidly throughout the finalization of the M&A process. Everything is changed at once, as the cultures and organizational structures are combined. Big bang methods require HR to develop its integration solutions before the M&A deal has been signed.  

The step-by-step method allows HR time to present employees with change opportunities after the merger has been finalized. Though neither method is essentially better than the other, each approach can come with its own benefits and adverse consequences.

In a 1-2 page paper, assess the rates at which key organizational functions change. In addition, you evaluate key organizational functions to consider during an M&A. Write a cohesive and scholarly response based on your readings and research this week that addresses the following:

·         Assess the rates at which key organizational functions change.

o    Identify the rate of change that makes the most sense for your organization. For example, would you rather make changes quickly or slowly?

o    Justify why you would use this approach by citing at least two potential benefits and then note two potential adverse consequences that come with the rate at which you would change organizational procedures.

o    Conduct additional research to find at least one failed M&A that could have benefited from using the same rate of change you identified. Provide a brief description of the failed M&A and cite specific examples that justify how the decision to make changes fast or slow can impact the success of an M&A.

·         Evaluate key organizational functions to consider during an M&A.

o    Describe and rank the top three functions that you would first focus on after an organization has been merged or acquired.

o    How could failure to integrate these key functions during an appropriate window of time lead to an M&A failure?
