Describe the key issues that affected the merger plan and its implementation.

Overview
An important aspect of a change management strategy is to consider how different alternatives may impact future outcomes. Organizations often use the business case method to explore strategic alternatives as it helps simulate a real situation. Such simulations help with identifying business issues and provide critical information that organizations can then use to arrive at their own conclusions.
The VP of business development has asked you to analyze other organizations that have gone through the exit process. Doing so will help you identify common risks, challenges, and best practices related to mergers and acquisitions and apply this knowledge to guide the change management strategy of the life sciences organization. For example, if two merging organizations have extremely different communication styles or organizational cultures, it may often lead to conflict between the management and the employees. The same is true when one organization is acquiring another organization. Therefore, it is important that you identify all potential risks and challenges and include the best practices to avoid similar conflicts in your organization after it has been acquired.
You have decided to research a business case that may help you learn from the experiences of another organization.
The focus of your analysis should be on change management and the associated best practices that impacted the transformation of the organization in the case.
Prompt
Review the case study Bumpy Road Ahead: The Automotive Interiors Merger That Wasn’t. Next, consider the following steps to complete your analysis of the automotive case and apply your findings from the case analysis to your work in the life sciences organization in the course scenario.
Specifically, you must address the following criteria:
Case Study Review
Provide a brief overview of the two organizations in the case study that addresses the following:

Identify common characteristics of each organization.
Explain how the products and services of the two organizations differ.

Describe the key issues that affected the merger plan and its implementation.

What were the key issues related to organizational cultures and structural integration that created problems after the merger of the two organizations? Support your response with information from the case.

Evaluate the postmerger integration and change management strategies used in the case. Your response should address the following:

How did the key decision makers respond to the challenges with the postmerger integration?
What led to the challenges faced by the organization after the merger?
Could these challenges have been prevented using different change management strategies? Explain.

Recommendations
Based on your findings from the case study, describe specific areas that may lead to post-acquisition risks and challenges for the life sciences organization in the course scenario. Support your response.
Recommend change management best practices the life sciences organization can use for managing post-acquisition integration in a planned manner and avoid the risks and challenges you’ve identified above.
Guidelines for Submission
Submit a 4- to 5-page Word document using double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Sources should be cited according to APA style.

What is the problem/need the product/service solves or addresses?

tHINK about following questions before you complete this discussion forum:
What is the problem/need the product/service solves or addresses?
Who is the customer, in demographic terms?
What is the customer’s psychographic?
Where is the customer located — what is the geography? Pick a place, be very specific, perhaps even by zip code so that you can easily pull data. If you go wide, like a region, a state, a county, a country, you must pull data for this area.
Consider the 5 Ps — product, place, promotion, price, people. You will need data on the marketing mix for all sections of the marketing plan. You should have a sense for this before you finalize your topic.
Research your topic concept. Assignment #1 includes an annotated bibliography. Did you find adequate data to inform an annotated bibliography? If not, rethink your topic. You must have at least ten examples of solid data that proves your topic is viable for market planning in your annotated bibliography.
How is your product or service innovative? What does it do that makes it innovative? Note: your product or service must be an innovation or a major improvement of something that already exists. For example, a caramel frappuccino is an innovation of a basic cup of joe; a self-serve point of sale kiosk is an innovation of a supermarket checkout stand; a smartphone is an innovation because it combines a pager, cell phone, computer, and PDA into one device.
Think of all these things during your ideation process. Keep it simple, focused, and narrow, very narrow.
A focused topic will help you focus the marketing plan assignments in week 2-8. Perform the annotated bibliography assignment (in assignment #1) to be sure your topic can be appropriately researched. If you go wide, you will need more data on a greater topic to justify your marketing plan. When you perform the research for the annotated bib, are you finding enough information, enough data? If not, rethink your topic.
Now you are ready to write your main post. In this forum, you will share your topic concept with the class. This discussion forum is a place for you to socialize your ideas for a product/service selection before you finalize your selection. The professor will comment on your idea. When the professor comments, this does not mean they have “approved” of your topic, they are simply discussing it with you.
Next, post your idea for the marketing plan. Explain your idea in detail, provide the basis of your thinking. “Pitch” your product/service concept; defend your idea to the class so they can comment on your concept. Help the other students brainstorm their topics in your subsequent posts.
What is the product or service? What problem or need does your product or service address?
What is the demographic/psychographic/geographic profile of your product/service?
Did you find adequate data? Share five examples of solid data that proves your idea is viable. You will need ten references in the annotated bibliography, but socialize only five in this forum.
How is your product or service innovative? What does it do that makes it innovative? Note: your product or service must be an innovation or a major improvement of something that already exists.
Consider all instructor and student feedback carefully when you make your final topic decision. Next, ask your professor to approve your product/service. The professor will tell you how to obtain approval. Plan to get approval before the end of this week (week one) so you can complete assignment #1.
