9:30 am - 10:00 am Don’t Let Culture Clash Sabotage Your Next Acquisition

Jared Jones - Senior Partner, Partners In Leadership
Close to 52,000 mergers and acquisition deals were announced worldwide in 2018, with a total value of 4.09 trillion USD. According to multiple studies, some 70% to 90% of all acquisitions are “abysmal failures.”  

These dire statistics result from a variety of common inadequacies, including ineffective risk management, unclear operational strategy, lack of communication between stakeholders, and poor project management. But there is another primary culprit which is often overlooked—the inability to integrate disparate company cultures. Research published in the International Journal of Innovation and Applied Studies confirms that misalignment between two company cultures is a prominent factor of acquisition failure.

In this session, learn how to:
·         Gain clarity around company culture
·         Establish shared organizational objectives
·         Define the shape of the new company culture
·         Assess your company culture
·         Thrive in the new company culture
Effectively addressing culture integration before, during, and after the mergers and acquisition transaction streamlines the development and management of the new company. Start managing your culture, or it will manage you.

2:00 pm - 2:30 pm How a Cognitive Enterprise Reinvents from the Inside Out

Dr. Munish Goyal - Distinguished Engineer & Chief Technical Officer, IBM Services
A new era of business reinvention is dawning. The 'outside-in' digital transformation focus is giving way to the 'inside-out' potential of reshaped standard business architectures and intelligent workflows thanks to an unprecedented convergence of forces and exponential technologies. This framework has given birth to Cognitive Enterprises who are defining and pursuing a bold vision to realize new sources of value and restructure their industries, missions and business models. Discuss how executives like you are focusing on becoming smarter businesses to take advantage of technologies and capitalizing on vast amounts of data to reinvent and transform from within. And because delivering enterprise services at scale is so critical, we will also collaborate on the standardizations required to drive the development and deployment of  effective cognitive enterprise agents at scale.
