Mergers and acquisitions are commonplace in a growth-centered environment, and the Bertucci Acquisitions “live case” experience supports the acquisition process head-on. Directed toward Human Resources (HR) issues that are central for attention, the experience puts participants in two groups: (1) the acquiring HR team; and (2) the acquired HR team. Real issues and challenges are tackled, including the tensions and underpinning conflicts that reflect reality. The experience presents a forum for potential resolution and a basis for learning about key dimensions needed for sustainable success. Looking for reality? Well, here you have it.
