    What are the unique change management challenges for Not-for-profit organization M&A?

    More and more non profit organizations are entering into the M&A fields, and expanding their impact and mission through merges and acquisition in a faster and more effective way. A lot of non profit organizations are self sustainable and do not require large government funding or donor funding, they have the funds and the the flexibility to acquire for profit companies that fit their mission profile.

    The two types of organizations, not-for-profit and for-profit, obliviously have different objectives, goals, financial targets etc. What would be some unique change management challenges that you would think that are unique to this type of M&A? or how would you management them effectively?

    Perhaps I am looking at this from a different angle, but I really don’t see a difference from a change management standpoint between not-for-profit and for-profit companies. As it relates to change management, it has nothing to do with the business model and everything to do with the people, the organizational culture, and the unique challenges that they face that must be overcome. The systems, processes, equipment… they all change easily. People, that is where you get resistance. Focus your efforts on understanding the people of the organization(s), their resistance, the WHY, and make sure that you have a strong consultant to lead the Human Capital Due Diligence component of your transaction. You do that and you will resolve your change management concerns.
