Winning the Human Side of M&A

Identifying human capital assets is the secret to a successful outcome

In the complex world of mergers and acquisitions, it's important to remember that in virtually every case, you are acquiring human capital in addition to all other forms of capital, like intellectual property, bricks and mortar and other tangible and intangible assets. Understanding the depth of skills and expertise of the human capital involved is imperative to ensuring a successful merger or acquisition. But the challenge remains: how do you find out who is most valuable, has the most expertise and can adapt the best to the requirements of the new entity?
