An independent consultant, Hubbard (business administration, Oxford U.) explains why half of all attempts to acquire a business, or merge two businesses, fail. Then she explores the psychology involved, describes a process for acquiring, and presents five case studies in which the names and other details of both the companies and people have been changed. The section on psychology particularly discusses the reaction of employees whose means of livelihood have just been bought and sold."Book News, Inc.

Review:

Reviews from the first edition:

'Acquisition: Strategy and Implementation is an excellent book...read it now rather than waiting to hear that your employer is acquiring another company or is being acquired.' - Ambassador

'I found myself nodding in agreement and mouthing the occasional 'Aha!' as I read, and I think other HR professionals will do the same...I found a wealth of good advice, tools and checklists here...readable, clearly laid out and packed full of good practical advice. It is essential reading for anyone who is involved in, or contemplating a merger or acquisition and I, for one, will be keeping it close to hand.' - Martin Hayton, HR Director, Cable & Wireless Communications, in People Management

'Very readable...an indispensable handbook on a subject affecting more businesses and stakeholders every year.' - The Director

'A well-researched and clearly-written guide to successful acquiring.' - Roger Carr, Chief Executive, Williams PLC

'Everything you want to know about acquisition explained with clarity and with perception for both the practising manager and the aspiring academic.' - Professor John McGee, University of Warwick

'Nancy Hubbard's excellent study provides [an] interesting assessment of the way people behave during an acquisition and gives clear practical guidance about the issues to be faced.' - Sir David Rowland, Deputy Chairman, Natwest Group

'Nancy Hubbard's very detailed research of good and bad acquisitions, matched with consulting experience, shows what can go wrong and how to get it right.' - Professor John Purcell, Bath University

Nancy Hubbard is a former lecturer at Oxford's School of Management in Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management. She also consults on acquisition issues and has worked on mergers/acquisitions ranging in size from GPB28 million to GPB21 billion transactions. She has lectured and consulted throughout the world on acquisition including at IES (Aix-en-Provence), Northwestern University, Wharton School of Management, and the Universities of Bath and Nottingham. Nancy has worked with executives from companies such as Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Kingfisher, Reed Elsevier, Williams plc, Anglo-American, P&O and Ford Motor Company. She has written acquisition related articles for the Financial Times, Accountancy Age, Acquisitions Monthly, Human Resource Magazine, Strategy, and Ambassador among others. She has contributed to and written four books on change and acquisition. Her latest book, Acquisition: Strategy and Implementation (Palgrave, 1999, 2000) was called 'essential reading' by both Director and People Management magazines. Nancy's four degrees include a Doctorate from Oxford examining acquisition implementation success factors.
