If considering GSC- cross border deals for instance the obvious cultural element would represent a challenge in PMI. This would depend though on how well this issue is anticipated during due diligence and of course the intended cultural integration. If cultural differences have been clearly identified along side adequate action plan then the PMI should have better chances of success. Some of the solutions would therefore be: thorough cultural assessment / evaluate cross border cultural differences / decide what to change, what to keep / engage in change management / develop new behaviour and working methods/ Review and measure progress.
