Being also new in the role and just started with an integration planning, I am calculating about 12 month to complete the integration.
This sounds a lot however you have to implement your new operating model in all the different departments, hire new people, change employee contracts etc. I think this will take a while. However, as also mentioned in the training, you have to show quick wins and first synergies early in the process to keep people engaged and motivated.
