Restructure with less risk and more confidence. Business integration and its inherent transformational elements always present
a number of tough challenges as well as opportunities for the business as a
whole – e.g. deciding what the target operating model will look like and choosing
which systems best suit new ways of working. Lack of clarity with these new ways
of working can cause additional hurdles. For example, sometimes politics can
get in the way; with ‘pet’ systems chosen over those systems that actually fit the
target operating model and the desired culture of the merged organisations.
