Podcast: Why Do Global Mergers and Acquisitions Fail?

Global PMI Partners Partner, Christophe Van Gampelaere, discusses his three tips for becoming more culturally competent in this podcast:

  • Read. Read books from Geert Hofstede, Erin Meyer, and others when it comes to culture. In other words, educate yourself. Know where you are yourself when it comes to cultural difference.
  • Institutionalize culture in the M&A pre-deal negotiations.
  • When you’re communicating with different cultures, after the M&A deal has been signed, take into account that different cultures communicate differently and that you should do too.
