Usually we’re focused on helping you create innovation from within, yet M&A’s play an integral role in a well rounded innovation strategy.
In today’s podcast episode we’re excited to switch things up and focus on lessons learned doing mergers & acquisitions.
**Some of the key topics we cover in this episode are:**
* The role M&A has in a company’s innovation practice.
* Acquiring technology vs. human capital.
* Ways to prevent culture clash and a deal from going bad.
* How the 3 E’s (Empathy, Experiments and Evidence) apply to M&A.
* How to run experiments on M&A’s.
