Numerous cameos, case material, tools and research results areprovided to help you put the advice into practice.Contents include: Why does the post-acquisition phase present difficulties Factors influencing post-acquisition management Which style is appropriate Taking charge of the new acquisition What changes are appropriate Golden rules of post-acquisition management

Dr Duncan Angwin has the unusual distinction of having spent half of his time transacting acquisitions and half his time studying them. He spent eight years in the City working on domestic and cross-border acquisitions as well as carrying out corporate advisory work for leading merchant banks such as Hambros Bank and Banques Paribas. His curiosity as to the limitations of the acquisitions process, such as why apparently good deals from a banker's perspective may turn out as poor acquisitions, led him to engage in full-time research on managing acquisitions. A PhD in post-acquisitions management later, he now consults and lectures widely on the subject. Dr Angwin holds a position as lecturer in Strategic Management at Warwick Business School, University of Warwick. He has published widely on mergers and acquisitions and appeared often in the media. He consults as sole practitioner and as associate consultant for several specialist integration consultancies. He also lecturers regularly to corporate audiences and leading Business Schools throughout Europe.Dr Angwin is a PhD from Warwick University. He also holds an MBA from Cranfield University, an M.Phil and M.A (Hons) from Cambridge University.
