Many organizations spends lots of time "fighting fires," that is, reacting to problems. Clearly, they do not have their headlights on the coming storm!

Mergers and acquisitions play a significant role in the survival and vitalization of many healthcare organizations today especially when competitive advantage can be obtained in economic turbulent and changing times. Whether for growth or value creation, M & A activity is viewed as a major strategy for improving innovation, profitability and market share.
The greatest obstacle to M & A success is notpoormatch, but rather poor post- merger integration.
M & As differ from "normal" organizational change processes in that their beginning state of duality requires a new organizational identity and a methodology for culture integration be established.
Post - Merger Integration coaching focuses its efforts on addressing the five critical merger success issues; namely, Time, Top Down and Bottom Up Focus, Identity, Communication and Organizational Duality.
There are no magical solutions, silver bullets or one-size fits-all solutions.
The key to successful post merger integration is a collaborative process designed to create an organizations' New Identity out of a Shared Vision.
It is the role of the Healthcare Executive Coach to follow the rhythm of the organization so that the stakeholders Create an Extraordinary Organization.
