As a follow-up to his highly popular book Intelligent M&A, author Scott Moeller expanded the chapter on surviving a merger into an in-depth discussion of the subject. Surviving M&A offers practical advice for professionals who worry about their jobs while their organizations are embroiled in the turmoil of a merger or acquisition. Moeller not only shows readers how to keep their jobs safe, but how to turn lemons into lemonade and actually move up the corporate ladder during the chaos of M&A. For anyone in this precarious position, this book offers smart ideas and winning tactics.
