To Whom It May Concern:
After almost a year of complex merger activities (8 companies smooshed into one group within a global corporation), my new role has become official: My software team will be developing technology for and prototypes of our next-generation product. This is ideal for my team, and the opportunity to innovate is very exciting. There were times when it seemed we would be lost in the re-org shuffling.
So I’ll again sing the praises of the “Managing During Mergers and Acquisitions” podcasts (here: http://www.manager-tools.com/2006/08/managing-during-mergers-and-acquist...) Of course, the entire M-T toolkit has been invaluable. Folks, this stuff works.
I’ve updated my occasional commentary and lessons learned here: http://www.manager-tools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1538
Thanks to Mark, Mike, and the M-T community for your generosity and support.
