    Has anyone had experience with ‘dream’ synergies or ‘nightmare miss-matches’ – interested to see how they cam about and what was the impact good or bad?

    Experienced ‘nightmare miss-matches’ as it describes the impact wasn’t good for both parties… This was a cross boarder deal, where the cultural differences messed up! Till the end the teams couldn’t understand or work with each another

    I’ve recently come across a “nightmare mismatch” that was as the result of a hostile take-over. Cultural differences (on both an organisational and country scale as it was a cross-border deal) has resulted in the non-acceptance of parent company initiatives in the target, and has even resulted in the deferral of PMI for more than a year as the parent company hopes to attempt same once the target becomes more likely to accept the eventual structural, procedural and cultural changes.
